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

In summary, video editing programs can play videos and show frame rates, with options for high speed cameras. The editing software can also display time in each frame automatically, without manual calculations.

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.
 

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

1. How accurate are the time measurements in fractions of a second on this video player?

The accuracy of the time measurements on a video player that shows fractions of a second can vary. It ultimately depends on the quality and capabilities of the video player and the source of the video. Some video players may have more precise time measurements than others, but most should be accurate to at least a few decimal places.

2. Can I adjust the time display on the video player to show only whole seconds?

Yes, most video players have the option to adjust the time display to show only whole seconds. This can usually be done in the video player's settings or through a shortcut key. However, this may result in less precise time measurements.

3. Is there a maximum limit to the number of decimal places shown for the time measurement?

This can vary depending on the video player, but most have a limit of displaying up to two or three decimal places for the time measurement. Some may have the option to display more, but it may not be necessary for most viewers.

4. How does the video player calculate and display fractions of a second?

The video player calculates fractions of a second by measuring the elapsed time since the video started playing and dividing it by the total number of seconds in the video. This calculation is displayed in the time measurement with the appropriate number of decimal places.

5. Are fractions of a second important for video playback or is it just for accuracy?

Fractions of a second can be important for certain types of videos, such as sports replays or scientific experiments, where precise timing is necessary. However, for most regular video playback, whole seconds are sufficient and fractions of a second are more for accuracy and precision.
