The snapshot feature no longer works after applying the latest patch for PowerDVD 19. I subscribe to the software and just noticed the problem today. A man must have a code. -Bunk

What are you trying to take a snapshot of? What content are you playing? Are you getting an error message, or just nothing happens?

The problem occurs with whatever video I'm playing (MP4 or WMV). I play them locally, and when I hit C to take a snapshot the folder is empty (under PowerDVD 19). There's no error message.

Have you enabled the high performance mode in more video settings?

It is for old GPU to run 4K video or use a 4k monitor. The performance mode will disable the snapshot function.
Current GPU won't need this mode to run smooth playback in 4K.

So, disable it if you want to take snapshots.

Thanks for the suggestion. I unchecked the box for high performance, but the snapshot feature still does not work.

The latest patch for Power DVD has not fixed this problem. Is the snapshot feature no longer supported? A man must have a code. -Bunk

I can take snapshot normally on video files playback (press "C" on keyboard) no matter with powerdvd 19 earlier version or current version.

It seems that the condition you received is not a bug that commonly occurs on other platforms.
Try reisntall the program to check if the hotkey works, or contact cyberlink support for further assistance.

I was able to resolve the issue by uninstalling, then reinstalling the application and pointing it to the correct folder on my PC.
