Display video frame number or SMPTE?

With what program may I have some video's frame number, SMPTE timecode, or equivalent information displayed while watching a video? Video viewers such as Mplayer, vlc, Totem, etc, will only display hh:mm:ss (down to seconds) but not frames. I need to know specific frames! Short of compiling Cinelerra or figuring something out in Kino, is there any way to accomplish this?

I am looking for something as fast as possible, as this may be a program I have to repeatedly run a few times a day. In other words, I really don't want to have to fire up Kino five times a day (nor leave it running all the time), especially not just for this usage. Besides, I get the drift that Kino (and Cinelerra?) are really only intended to open DV files, of which I have scant few, if any.

Any ideas? Maybe just some plugin I need? Anything possibly similar to VirtualDub?
