Default Convert video segments to JPEG

My brother has a problem, and I hope someone here can help. After a recent
trip to Hawaii, he discovered that a number of his pictures had been recorded
by the camera as video segments rather than as JPEG images. Apparently he
inadvertently set a camera option to make that happen sometime during the
trip.

It seems to me that there must be utilities capable of converting video
segments to JPEG images, but I've never used such a program and don't know
where to find one. I'll do a Google search, but I assume that some of the most
useful expertise is probably to be found in this newsgroup.

The pictures themselves are essentially static (after all, my brother thought
he was taking still pictures), so I don't suppose they'll provide any
intrinsic technical problems of an insurmountable nature. Can someone advise
us?

I know that QuickTime Pro on a Mac can easily do that. QT is available
for Macs and Windows, but I am not sure if that specific feature is
available on Windows.

FWIW - usually the resolution of the video clips is much lower - often
320x240 or 640x480 - so the res of the converted images would be pretty
low. At least, he should be able to view in a video viewer and get screen
dumps of the video.

Media Player Classic, VLC, WMP, NeroShowtime etc etc and just about any mpeg
editing program can give you a still from a frame on a PC.

My favourite tool is Virtual Dub. You can export the video as a stream
of images are easily.

What format is the video in?
Many machines have Power DVD on them. (comes with the DVD writer/player).
This can capture jpgs.
