I have a video playing, and at some point, i need to pause the video, take a capture, and use then that image, to modify it, in a paint activity. The problem is that if, i try to save the video, the picture will be black (tried with setDrawingCacheEnabled(true); ).
Is it possible to take a screenshot of a video?
have you tried ThumbnailUtils.createVideoThumbnail(String, int)?
Try this Link ..
Hope it may help you
Bitmap saveBitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(imageFrame.getWidth(), imageFrame.getHeight(), Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888); Canvas c = new Canvas(saveBitmap); imageFrame.draw(c);

I Think u should use screencaputre application in android that is use full to you... rather than the best way for u can connect your android with PC than start the video and pause it, than in keyboard press print screen, and in paint software press ctrl+V (paste) and save in jpeg format than you get the screen shot/image...
