Ah, right, the solutions question.
I was only looking at the "figure out what goes wrong" question so far.
A really good solution would need really understanding the problem first.
But if it's vsync or lack of GPU resources I would have thought that -framedrop should work.
Have you tried that?
Some people might not want to use it, for example if you are sensitive to frames being dropped incorrectly.
But I would think for most users it's a good option to use anyway.
