video or stills for action

I'm fairly new to photography and have recently discovered how easy to extract a still from a 4K video on my Mac.  I like to shoot a lot of action so I'm wondering how wise it is to just shoot videos and extract frames instead of trying to get "the shot" all the time.  It seems that if I just shoot video for what I'm after say an event that lasts 10-30 seconds I would never miss a shot and have many choices to boot.

Is that done often?  Any real drawbacks like, IQ, focus problems, etc.  It just seems like a great way to go for me at least at this point.  Any insights?  Thank you.
