Watch Movies in Microsoft Paint

No joke, did you know that you can watch movies in paint? But you can’t do anything (Just watch it, when its playing in Winamp..hope its of no use other than just experimenting…

Here’s what you gotta do :

1. Open your favourite movie player and play the movie (I played the .mpg format in Winamp)

2. Hit “PrintScreen”, keep playing the movie in the player, dont stop it.

3. Open MsPaint.

4. Select “Edit>Paste” Or Hit “CTRL+V”

P.S: You can watch movies in Paint! But there is no Pause, Next, Previous, Stop etc. buttons..
Experiment with other formats too, it doesn’t play DivX , Flash movies, etc.

Microsoft hasn’t revealed this, so its kinda taboo..!!
