Works in 1.4 but the github version fails to play nicely.

I'm pretty sure that's a bug in VLC itself. KDEConnect uses MPRIS over dbus to send signals. But VLC returns wrong values that's why resume doesn't happen. Here is the bug report. https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/22785

Ok....not sure why

https://github.com/voncloft/kdeconnect-kde/tree/c17972881b68a5979f4cc9c33dc09087b0dedece

works with VLC 3.0.11.1

I'll just toss it up to luck at this point

Happens with youtube on firefox as well......

After some debugging we found that the information that the call is finished is sent with some large delay (30s). Possiblity due to the Android system sending it with delay, but hard to tell without talking a closer look at the Android app

Seems to be the cause after using it more often.
