I was setting up a server instance for Syncplay on a server. When i attempted to install the .deb package, the hard dependency on vlc/mpv makes the package manager want to install the whole dependency chain for that (X11 server among other things).
This is really not ideal when trying to install just the server, i don't want to install X11 on a headless machine somewhere in cloud. I solved this by repackaging the deb file and removing the vlc/mpv and pyside2 dependency.
My suggestion is, that there should be a server only package so that you don't have to repackage, but still get the benefits of using a package manager.

I believe the discussion at #335 is relevant, especially the comments by @daniel-123. Linux isn't my area, but my understanding is that if someone is willing to implement and maintain support for a server-only package then they are free to make a PR. You would probably want to wait for PR #374 to be resolved before trying to make a PR implementing this feature, though.
I made a server-only fork of syncplay (removed all the client code) a while back. It isn't neat, and I changed a large chunk of the code to work with my specific use case, but it's here if you want it.
