I suppose you just want a decent player with frame-by-frame navigation.
I use MPC-HC player (https://mpc-hc.org/ ).
It is much better than VLC for this purpose, you can navigate
frame by frame and show time with milliseconds, and even set custom
keyboard shortcuts. If you want to see exact frame number I don't think
there is such a player.
