You can use ffmpeg, a cross-platform command-line tool, to extract the frames you want as PNG files, which you can then open in Photoshop. From the documention, there are several approaches you can take. One would be: ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -ss 00:00:14.435 -vframes 1 out.png Where "00:00:14.435" identifies the time of the frame you want to extract.
According to supported formats list and similar experience of other users, you'll need an Adobe-supplied codec (e.g. from Adobe Premiere Pro) to open MPEG-2 files with Photoshop CS6 or newer; older versions relied on QuickTime.
