VLC version 3.0.8 included in Raspbian Buster with has been tweaked to work with the Raspberry Pi Hardware.

Version 4 is not even in Debian Buster Testing, so your only option is to build from Source Code, post back on your success:

It may be compiled with support for MMAL or OMX, but it will miss all HW acceleration inside windows, as this has been added by RPT.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer
