Q: Does VLC support all DVD regions?
This is more dependent on your DVD drive than the VLC media player software. If your hardware supports multiple different regions, then the media player should be able to play it as expected without any work on your part. In some cases, an encryption key will be needed to play the DVD which could cause problems in some pieces of software. However, VLC will attempt to crack the encryption key automatically and should allow you to play it successfully without any intervention from you
Q: One of my media files wont play, why?
VLC media player has support for most different file formats and codecs to ensure maximum compatibility. If you have complied your own version of VLC Media Player you're having a problem playing a file, then the first thing to do is to check that you've installed all of the codecs correctly.
Q: How do I take screenshots during playback?
This is possible and it's very easy too. VLC has hotkeys built-in so that when you press Ctrl+Alt+S on a Windows or a Linux machine (Or Command+Alt+S on Mac OS X) it will automatically save it to the default screenshot directory.
This is much easier than using default screen capturing as you don't need to crop the image to get the desired results. To change the default screenshot directory, go into Preferences --> Video and then change the video snapshot option to the new location on your computer.
