Is there a way to move frame by frame in a YouTube video?

I don't want to download the video.

I know that Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, etc. can jump to sections in a video. That's cool, but I would like more navigation options.

Do you need to do this for many videos or just a single video? If one, just download the file and use VLC/QuickTime to play the .flv or .m4v. –  Jared Updike Sep 7 '10 at 16:39
    
That looks like my only option so far. It would be nice if worked in the browser, though. –  snitzr Sep 7 '10 at 19:11

There's a Web App and a Google Chrome Extension which allow you to move frame by frame through a YouTube video:

  • RowVid - Web App
    • Frame by frame
    • Slow motion
    • Current time in milliseconds
  • Frame by Frame - Google Chrome Extension
    • Frame by frame

You can do this using the YouTube enhance userscript;

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/33042

Media Controller :

☯ Step back: Go backward to the nearest video keyframe and pause.

☯ Step forward: Go to the next frame and pause.

Hope this helps.

I'm getting a Server Error at the moment for that link. –  snitzr Sep 16 '10 at 19:40
    
It was down but seems to be working again now. –  Whitingx Sep 20 '10 at 9:02

Your right and left arrow keys will step forwards and backwards.
