Watch movies in Paintbrush !!!! Weird yet true

Today I found out a strange fact…..It’s possible to watch movies and any video file in Microsoft Paintbrush.

To do this, just open any video file from your favorite player, then press the ‘Print Screen’ button on the keyboard. Now open Paintbrush and paste this screenshot. You’ll now see a motion picture. Isn’t this amazing???

You can even save this file anywhere in your file system. Just save the paintbrush file on desktop. Now open that file and you’ll see the video being played right on your desktop. No need of a video player!!!

I went on to research about this, and found out that the software was designed such that it won’t be possible for anyone to capture a screenshot of a video easily. However it’s possible to take a screenshot of the video file being played by using the VLC player.
