I need four stills from a commercially available DVD, they are for a College assignment. I've tried the CMD, SHIFT, 3 combination but the resulting screen grab only has a chequered background where the still should be in the DVD player window. Is there a little utility I can download to enable this seemingly simple task to be executed successfully? Many thanks.

Try VLC

VLC media player - Open Source Multimedia Framework and Player

Apple's DVD player does not allow taking screen shots from commercially protected DVDs
