The problem with grabbing a frame from a video

I hear a lot of people suggesting that you can get a good still image by just grabbing a frame from 4K video. That sounds good but you need to be aware that if the video is of a moving subject your grabbed frame will be an image that was shot at probably a lot lower shutter speed than you would normally have used to photograph the same moving subject with a still camera. For example if you shot the video at 24 frames per second, you probably has the shutter speed set at 1/50 sec. I don't know many people that would shoot a moving car or motor bike at 1/50 sec and be happy with the resulting blurred image.
