Videostreaming with VDR.

I know that is not the main usage of the Pinephone, but now I have only my Pinephone available to have access to my private network with the USB-C dock and the Ethernet connexion.

On a desktop computer, Debian Buster, I have a VDR service. The URL of my VDR service is 'http://<my computer>:3000'. On the Pinephone I get the URL of a TNT channel or a records, for this I use a webrowser like elinks, Fireforx, etc. 

The video is jerky. There is a big delay between the video and the sound. If I plug a monitor on the USB-C dock, it's worth.

I have no troubles with the streaming with an other desktop computer, even if this is a Windows computer ... So, the VDR service is working as expected.

After, I must use a tool to see the video stream, 'mpv' and 'vlc' can do that. VLC consume more resources than 'mpv'. With 'mpv' I have a message that say :

[vo/gpu/wayland] GNOME's wayland compositor is known to have many serious issues with mpv. Switch to GNOME's xorg session for the best experience.

I've try 'mpv' with many configurations like :
$> mpv http://<my computer>:3000/65030:52559969.rec.ts
$> mpv http://<my computer>:3000/65030:52559969.rec.ts --cache-secs=8
$> mpv http://<my computer>:3000/65030:52559969.rec.ts --cache=yes --demuxer-readahead-secs=30 --demuxer-thread=yes --demuxer-rawvideo-w=640

'mpv' could be not the good application to use in this case. I have not found how to use a streaming URL with Totem.

How to have a fluent video and audio streaming on the Pinephone with Mobian ?

Best regards.
