Any video player that shows time in fractions of a second?

    Every video editing program shows it. Not sure about pure video players, but every editing program can play videos as well.

    indeed, frame rate is your limiting factor and for standard domestic recorders, that's commonly 25 or 30 fps
    then there's jumps to 60, 100's or 1000's of fps for the high speed specialist cameras

    my editing software easily shows the 25 and 30 fps individual frames

    I can jump to a specific second in VLC player, say 0m:02s, then jump frame by frame to the frame I want, and add the time interval between each frae x number of frames.
    But are you saying editors can automatically show me time in each frame, without me having to calculate it?
    like 2.04 s for example?

    Sure.
    Note that they might round values of 1/30 s to something which is not exactly 1/30 s.
