I need a video player that will allow me to seek to a specific point in a video. Using a slider is not accurate enough. Which video players have this feature?

Media Player Classic Home Cinema allows you to jump to a very specific time.

Just hit CTRL+G to bring up the Go To... dialog box.

Almost all have the feature , try VLC.
Go to Playback > Jump to Specific Time

It only allows seconds to be specified. That's not accurate enough. – tony_sid Jan 14 '11 at 10:18
are you seeking to go to a specific frame in the video ? – Shekhar Jan 14 '11 at 10:39

I know mplayer has an option "-sb <byte position>", which I guess would be pretty accurate. To my knowledge it doesn't allow you to seek by millisecond though, which I guess is what you're looking for.
