If, like myself, you like taking screenshots of GDQ but don't want to play it in an external app to support the stream: I wrote a quick userscript that adds a screenshot button

(yes this is the Instagram icon, i couldn't find a "photo" icon in Twitch's UI so this will have to do)

Oh also you can press F9 and it does the screenshot automatically as well. It might blank out the video for some reason if you do it too many times in a short time, don't know why 🀷

@Eramdam it's a shame that Firefox's "save snapshot" feature doesn't work because they block the <video> context menu

@noiob yeah, im sure you could put an extension together to add a context menu entry but even then a lot of players with custom UIs block the first right click.

Maybe I should make a "add screenshot button" extension for a bunch of video-playing websites :thonking:

@Eramdam no, I mean, the Firefox context menu has a "Save snapshot as…" entry usually, I use it all the time on Youtube

@Eramdam do it on an exposed video (right-clicking twice on Youtube works), it'll show a bunch of video-related entries

@Eramdam it's nice because it just saves the current video frame, so it's not affected by screen resolution

@noiob i just noticed my userscript already respects the video's dimensions 😎
