You can use the Print Screen button in case the program does not offer a hotkey but please make sure that the playing mode is set as Direct 3D or DirectX mode because if you use Overlay, all you'll get will be a black screen. You can do this from the configuration options.

You can use a screenshot application to capture the HD video and set it as wallpaper. What am I using is free online screenshot, you can launch it online and drag your mouse cursor to take screenshot, and even share to various social media directly. You can read the tutorial to see the details of this method.
