Hey everyone.

I'm modifing Ffplay, in order to make it a preview player for video editing. I
did some marker in and out function, in order to play only a part from a video.
But I would like to capture the markers and save them to image.
I first think to use SDL_SaveBMP() in oder to copy the screen surface. But when
I am doing it, I'am geting a black picture (with the good size) but not the
image I would like.
I guess it is because of the using of Overlay system. But I have no idea how I
can get a snasphot of a video in this case.

Is anybodie have a Idea what I can do and how ?
