... I will accept that VLC produces a higher quality output than omxplayergui ... No, it doesn't. As long as you stay in window mode (and not go to full screen using the x11 MMAL splitter), you get quite a lot of lost frames in VLC, if the video format is quite demanding (e. g.

I've noticed that you are spilling the same kind of wrong information and misunderstandings regarding the VC4 and video...

Re: Upgraded to stretch - now there is only audio in web video players when using epiphany browser

Epiphany is not HW accelerated any more on Stretch, but it was not "replaced by Chromium". It's simply a different (and more lightweight) browser.

Video should work again, if you install all gstreamer-1.0 plugins.
