Try this exemple it is in the Video library exemple and you can read each frame one by one with the keyboard:


/**
 * Frames 
 * by Andres Colubri. 
 * 
 * Moves through the video one frame at the time by using the
 * arrow keys. It estimates the frame counts using the framerate
 * of the movie file, so it might not be exact in some cases.
 */
 
import processing.video.*;

Movie mov;
int newFrame = 0;

void setup() {
  size(640, 360);
  background(0);
  // Load and set the video to play. Setting the video 
  // in play mode is needed so at least one frame is read
  // and we can get duration, size and other information from
  // the video stream. 
  mov = new Movie(this, "2.mkv");  
  
  // Pausing the video at the first frame. 
  mov.play();
  mov.jump(0);
  mov.pause();
}

void movieEvent(Movie m) {
  m.read();
}

void draw() {
  background(0);
  image(mov, 0, 0, width, height);
  fill(255);
  text(getFrame() + " / " + (getLength() - 1), 10, 30);
}

void keyPressed() {
  if (key == CODED) {
    if (keyCode == LEFT) {
      if (0 < newFrame) newFrame--; 
    } else if (keyCode == RIGHT) {
      if (newFrame < getLength() - 1) newFrame++;
    }
  } 
  setFrame(newFrame);  
}
  
int getFrame() {    
  return ceil(mov.time() * 30) - 1;
}

void setFrame(int n) {
  mov.play();
    
  // The duration of a single frame:
  float frameDuration = 1.0 / mov.frameRate;
    
  // We move to the middle of the frame by adding 0.5:
  float where = (n + 0.5) * frameDuration; 
    
  // Taking into account border effects:
  float diff = mov.duration() - where;
  if (diff < 0) {
    where += diff - 0.25 * frameDuration;
  }
    
  mov.jump(where);
  mov.pause();  
}  

int getLength() {
  return int(mov.duration() * mov.frameRate);
}
