How To Play Video In VLC Player Frame

In VLC Player Frame, you can play a video frame by frame if you want to analyze it.

If you want more control over this feature, you can activate the advanced controls. Let’s take a look at how to do it.


How To Play Video In VLC Frame By Frame

The video will now pause and be played one frame at a time via VLC Media Player. To play the next frame, press the E Button once more.

This frame-by-frame feature works in VLC both when the video is playing and when it is paused.

You can also use Frame by Frame numbers to help you figure out which frame you’re looking at.

On your Windows PC, go to Tools >> Media Information to see the frame number in your VLC player.

You can see the frame displayed and lost in the Statistics window under the Video option.

In VLC, multiply both the Displayed and Lost frame values to get the frame number.

How Do I Reverse frame by frame in VLC?

By default, the frame by frame function only advances one frame at a time.

There is currently no way to make it go backward in time frame by frame. For frame stepping, press the “A shortcut” key.
