Qt6 Version of Elisa still pulls in VLC

The Elisa package pulls in both Qt Multimedia _and_ VLC (for libvlc) which is redundant and not necessary.

I removed VLC and built it without VLC dependency and it works just perfectly fine and plays music using Qt Multimedia using its backend (in my case ffmpeg)

I checked the origin of the VLC dependency and according to an Backend Developer of Elisa, the only reason for this was Windows compatibility as Qt Multimedia on Windows results in bad codec support

As Elisa is the only application that pulls in VLC on my system and works fine without it using Qt Multimedia, i would say it is perfectly safe to remove VLC from the dependencies.
