A few days ago, an insider told me that she can't find the capture icon while she was playing a video in the video player app. As a note, the option to display the capture icon is enabled by default therefore if you can't find the capture icon make sure that the capture option in the settings menu while playing a video is not disabled.


How to fix can't find the capture icon while playing a video in the video player app?
To get this option, make sure the capture option is enabled. You can enable this option by using the following steps:
  1. Open the Video Player app.
  2. Tap the required video to play it.
  3. Tap the Menu key and then select Settings.
  4. Mark the checkbox next to Capture to enable this option.
  5. Tap Close button.
  6. Now you should see the capture icon is displayed at the top of the screen while playing a video.

Basically, you can take a screenshot of the playback by using the palm motion or using combination of the Power button and the Home button, but using the capture button to take a screenshot while playing a video is much easier to do. Other advantage when you use the capture icon is this option will give you a full screen screenshot no matter how you hold (horizontally or vertically) the phone while playing a video.
