I tried using the vlc backend here due to a sound problem and didn't notice any problems. Not the latest Qt etc though. Odd problem as I have heard that upstream kde prefer a vlc phonon back end.

Later I changed to vlc3 beta due to problems down to installing an nvidia graphics driver. vlc generated segmentation faults. I've had an nvidia update since so may be ok now.

Maybe installing this version would fix this problem Seems to run for me without any issues. Video, youtube and TV via a usb tv receiver. Only thing I have noticed is that depending on what it's playing it doesn't make use of the graphic card's on board codec decoding. It always does showing TV but video is hit and miss. I've been messing with many codecs and 4k though out of curiosity and hadn't looked at this before. I believe from comments earlier versions >2.2 are the same. So left it all as TBD as I have other problems.
