I was just sitting thinking, like many users out there I'm an iPhone user and one that does not have much storage left so downloading programmes to my phone ( as limited as it is) isn't really practical to me.
However I have a vpn server at home that I use to connect to my home network when out and about. So I was thinking would it be possible for me to connect to my home network when I'm on a separate network and stream recordings to my phone from the v6 as if I was in the house?

I dont have a server so I'm not sure I'd be able to do it. I was using OpenVPN but my router (Asus AC66U) puts the VPN connections onto a 10.x.x.x subnet when my LAN is on 192, so I imagine thats why mDNS doesn't seem to work because of the subnet difference. I couldn't change the settings either as it doesn't seem to want to allow the VPN to be on the same subnet.
That might put a block in the way of you getting it working.
You need to use the server-bridge option with OpenVPN which will allow the forwarding of DHCP packets.
Support for bridging the interfaces on the device running the OpenVPN server will also be a factor, I had to install bridgeutils to create a bridgeable interface on my box, but with you running it on a router I'm not sure how featured your environment will be.
