VLC no longer handles high resolution 4k videos very well compared to before I upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04.

Other software programs were also upgraded to newer versions without my knowledge until after the upgrade when I went to use them.

Is there any way to fix this?

I had similar issue, VLC recommends installing it from snap store using snap solved my issue.

sudo apt purge vlc
sudo snap install vlc

snap provides the latest version and required dependencies in a single package.
