Q: How do I resize the captures?
A: When the capture window is displayed, below it will be the edit window.
The first button is the resize button. Click on it and then select the size you want.
When you have the desired size, click on save.
Q: The captures are too dark?
A: You can use the brightness and contrast sliders to adjust the
capture. If you're going to resize the capture, use the edit controls on the original capture
first, then resize.
Q: How do I save them?
A: After you've used capture, click on the save button to save.
You can use the AutoName feature to automatically name and save them. All captures can be saved
in the current folder, AutoSave folder, or any preselected folder.
Q: Why is there a Time lapse before playing?
A: This only happens with .WMV (Windows Media Video ) videos.
If the video plays too slow or is jerky and skipping frames, then your
computer's video hardware may not be capable of playing full motion .wmv videos.
A faster video card with more memory on it may do the trick.
Q: Why don't MOV or DivX files play?
Make sure you have the drivers and codecs for both. You can get all the files needed for WMV by downloading the free Windows Media Player. And the files needed for MOV from QuickTime from Apple.com. You can get the free DivX codec from
Q: How do I download videos?
A: Use the "Video URL" button to download videos from the Internet. You
must have permission from secure sites, but not from free download sites. All you need to do is
enter the videos URL. Example: http://thevideosite.com/videos/video.mpg. The download progress
will be displayed by the slider bar. By clicking on "Play" button, you can restart the download before it's completed.
Q: What are SELECT START & SELECT END good for?
A: You can use them to select the start and ending of the video.
This does not change or convert the video. It allows you to play the same frames over and over again without having to play the rest of the video.
Q: Why do I need different graphic formats?
A: Some formats are not quality graphics, like GIF. But GIF has an advantage of being one of the smallest formats to save and transfer over the internet. While others are of better quality but take more room on your hard drive or take longer to transfer over the internet.
Q: What does Autoname do?
A: AutoName will automatically name your video captures for you. Saving you the time of having to name each and every capture. Example: auto1.jpg, auto2.jpg, auto3.jpg, and so on.
Q: What is the AutoSave folder, and where is it?
A: The AutoSave folder is one of the options for saving your captures.
EZV will place the saved graphic capture in the AutoSave folder for you automatically. Or, you can have them default to the folder the video is in, or you can select any folder on any drive to save the captures in.
You will find the AutoSave folder off the EZV folder. Example: C:\Program Files\EZV\AutoSave.
Q: Can I convert videos?
A: No. That's not what EZV does. It does not convert videos or audio files. There are tons of those programs out there now that do just that. EZV is more unique in that it allows you to capture those video frames to graphics so you can share those special shots with friends and family.
Q: What is the VideoList?
A: The VideoList is a holder for a list of videos. Just click on any name to play that video. This allows you to select many videos at one time without having to keep going to the load video selection.
Q: What is the difference between the trial and registered versions?
A: Only two things. The UNregistered version times out after 7 days. And ... only allows you to make 3 captures per session. Which is all you need to see if the program is right for you. No watermarks are included on the captures. The registered version of course does not time out and allows unlimited captures.
