I use VLC player because, well, I just always have. It does a things I need like recording what's playing so that I can make smaller video clips.

The only problem with the functionality of that feature in VLC is that it doesn't start and stop exactly when you press the button.

Does anyone know an alternative that will provide the mentioned functionality, but do it slightly better?

Googling brought me to try mediaplayer HC, MPlayer and MPUI, Media Player Classic and some others, but they start going downhill after that.

I personally use Media Player Classic (Linux MPlayer), it's much more accurate at stopping than VLC. Keep in mind however that pretty much every player will revolve around the same codecs and depend ultimately on the HQ of the video and your computer hardware. I know others who use BS.Player for media as it is heavily configurable, but it is not open-source. Try looking over wikipedias comparison to get a feel for what's out there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_video_player_software
