Default camcorder question

I have a miniDV camcorder. I want a way to take snapshots of video and save the image as a jpeg or other file on my computer.

There was a device a while back called Snappy that allowed this. I would think now since I can connect my camcorder directly to the computer there should be just a simple software program to do this function.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I only have a Hi-8 video camera, but I connect it to my computer using a Winfast 2000XP tv tuner card. When recording the video onto the computer there's a button on the screen that you can click on to take snapshots that are then automatically saved and can easily be converted to jpeg using a free program like Irfanview. I know this isn't exactly your situation, but sounds close
