    Hey guys, did you know that you can REALLY watch movies in paint ?

    Here's what you gotta do :

    > Open your favorite movie player and play the move (I played the .mpg format in Winamp)

    > Hit "PrintScreen", keep playing the movie in the player, dont stop it.

    > Open MsPaint.

    > Select "Edit>Paste" Or Hit "CTRL+V"

    > Presto! You can watch movies in Paint!:p

    > But there are no Pause, Next, Previous, Stop etc. buttons :):lol:

    > Spead this fact to all your friends and show how COOL things you can do with Paint!

    > Experiment with other formats too, it doesn't play DivX:( , Flash movies(*.flv), etc. Microsoft hasn't revealed this, I think.

    Man! MsPaint is GREAT! I never knew how interesting a boring Image Editing software could be!
    This also works with many other similar Image Editing Software too.

    =====================================================================================================
    NOTE: The actual Credit to all of this, goes to my friend, Vishak Malepati (No need to Google him, you wont find him) who was watching a movie and wanted to capture a frame of it, and use it as a wallpaper, but as he was a newbie (at that time) he did the above steps and found out this amazing fact ! He told me about it and i'm requesting you to share it with your friends and colleagues.
    =====================================================================================================

    Thankx

    I already found this by accident when I wanted to catch a shot from a movie to put as my wallpaper. You can even watch movies on your desktop wallpaper by saving the image you pasted and setting it as your wallpaper.

    Actually, I read that this is done to prevent people from taking screenshots. Wonder why :confused:

    dude this is very old stuff. I find it surprising that so few people know abt this so called *trick* .... :D :-o

    More of this ... but hope many of u kno dis already ...]

    ** Go to [Tools -> Options-> Performance] in Windows Media Player and disable Video Acceleartion (set the slider from "full" to "none"). Whoa the aforementioned *trick* doesn't work ... because directdraw video acceleration is disabled.


    ** U can save that JPG/BMP in paint and open that saved file in any Image viewer.. the video continues to play in that image viewer too (provided WMP continues to play in the background.


    ** Wanna see a video playing as a wallpaper ? Either set that *active* image as a wallaper OR use VideoLAN Client. Goto [Video-> Wallpaper].


    ** Also wanna see ASCII characters in VLC instead of the video. Follow The screenshot:

    [img=http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/6034/tempvy6.th.jpg]

    Go on tampering wid the advanced settings and u will fing secrets !!!! :D :)
