Sorry about that. Ive tried 2 times to post but wasnt working right. Muy comment dissapears.
Can you please upload the extension to dropbox or similar, there's something going on with addons.videolan.org, always asks for username and password and there is no way to register rather. Thanks!

Thanks friends sorry for been unable to to post comment, You get the extension at https://www.dropbox.com/s/r8a9qsdgaws5g03/149618-time.zip?dl=0 , on dropbox, download and extract and follow other instruction and thus you will be able to show millisecond in vlc media player.

I have updated it on the tutorial, just click on the time extension to download the extension to be used to change vlc timing format by showing milliseconds.

Thanks pal! Tested and working.
Now you may wanna check the comments box, in chrome and edge browsers on my PC it never loads. I'm replying from my Android phone using Chrome Dev app.
