Don't call the work of others "too worthless to exist". Your rudeness is
VLC doesn't have to skip frames but drops them as a feature to hurry up the
playback. You'll find it in its many advanced options. If its about viewing a
video frame by frame then you can reconfigure the GUI of VLC to include a button
for it. You'll find a keyboard shortcut for it, too.
My preferred player is mpv - simple, fast and yet powerful options. You can
watch a video frame by frame with , and . in single steps. When you start it
from the command line with --osd-fractions will it show an exact time code down
to milliseconds on the console.
$ apt-get install mpv
