I have recorded a class presentation and I am copying the teacher's speech. Sometimes I need to return just 2/3 seconds or a fraction to repeat what was just said. How can I do it with VLC?

  • I do not believe VLC has this feature. MPC-HC has a High precision option: superuser.com/questions/964808/… – MC10 Dec 19 '15 at 6:26
  • VLC has definable jump settings, they default to 1s, 10s & 1m on, I think by default, shift, ctrl or alt + arrow key - but not an absolute GoTo timestamp. – Tetsujin Dec 19 '15 at 7:33
  • Jump to specific time in VLC is Ctrl+T. It opens a Go to Time window but it is only accurate to the second. – MC10 Dec 19 '15 at 8:07
  • OSX version is ⌘J – gatorback Feb 27 at 16:21
VLC v2.2+ --> Tools --> Plugins and extensions --> Extensions --> Find more addons online

Install the Jump to time (Previous frame) extension. It can get the exact time in milliseconds and can make split-second jumps. You will find it in the View menu.

More details at the Extension Homepage and Forum thread.

  • To activate the dialog that shows the more precise time, go to VLC -> Extensions -> Jump to time... – Pysis Aug 7 '18 at 17:19
