Rendered output screenshot

We build many permanent installations, and with this, the client will often request 'proof of playback' for advertisements - as an example.

Any way to add a feature that will schedule screenshots of the rendered outputs and save to a local file on the manager?

Might be a way to do this using a 3rd party screenshot program to schedule regular screenshots.

I am not sure if the programs will be able to capture the output of PB. It would need to be tested.

I can tell you there is a trick to do a traditional screenshot in Windows. If you either VNC or connect a keyboard to your server/player, then hit the windows key, then print screen - the output will be captured to the clipboard.

So, maybe a 3rd party app like:

Or maybe Widget could do it through the shortcut keystroke thingy.

That app sounds promising. We will test and report back.
