PostSubject: Laserdisc screenshots   Thu May 26, 2011 1:30 pm

I've been experimenting with plugging my LD player into the computer to try and get some screenshots and videos. It's early days yet, I'm sure there's much more I can do to improve the quality but I thought it might be of interest to some of you.

I'm using a Composite to USB/audio jack converter to connect to computer and LD player, and a piece of software called DScaler to watch/record/screencap the laserdiscs.

Here's a few shots:

The Terminator:

I love that the laserdisc preserves the opening text on screen, the DVD has it as subtitles and it looks aweful.



The Matrix:





Queen: Live In Budapest:



Jurassic Park:



Nom

Where'd my food go?

Back again

And last but not least...

I hope I'll be able to get some better quality screencaps in future, the picture certainly looks much better on my TV screen than you see here.

Has anyone else experimented with this?

Because PAL laserdiscs don't suffer from anti-aliasing problems I've managed to capture these two frames from the UK version of the Abyss Special Edition that demonstrate the poor quality censorship of the Beanie scene.

I use my JVC DVD recorder to make screenshots, just connect everything up via SCART and then press record and put the finalised DVD in the PC, copy the VOB or VRO file and then use ffmpeg from the terminal window in Linux to extract whatever frames I need.

The pictures come out as 720x576, some examples from various players and discs:
