Capturing on a Youtube Comments Page

There's a problem when capturing a screen section from the comment's page of a youtube video.

I tried to snag the section of the page which includes the video description and also part of the first comments. However, it was not possible. The crosshair does not jump sections. If I start defining the video id section, it doesn't go into the comment's section. If I start defining the comment's section, the crosshair doesn't go up towards the video id section. 

I did notice that sliding the crosshair towards the far right; outside of the video and comments section, it freely moves from top to bottom; only when in the video or comments section does it get limited, or restricted, vertical movement.

I'm including a link to the page I was traying to capture with Snagit for Chrome.

Yep.  This is a known issue.  When the cursor crosses over content embedded in an <iframe> element, we lose mouse events until it has reached the other side.  We are looking into a fix.  If it isn't addressed by the public release next week, it should be fixed shortly thereafter.
