Even though you’re absolutely right, I must say, VlC as a video player is great and that’s pretty much what I use it for. If you’re not interested in playing video files and DVDs, I probably would indeed use something else, particularly as it’s really difficult nowadays to get things like the all /full preferences screen to read with a screen-reader. Immensely powerful and robust programme, but not always the most convenient to use. There are craploads of keyboard commands, but it’s necessary to remember them and since there’s very little feedback from your screen reader, you just have to know what you are doing.

Personally, I'm with Curtis on this one. I have never liked VLC's Windows application implementation. It just seems to me to be insanely complicated compared to any one of a number of other options. Now, mind you, if you need some of the myriad features that come with VLC, it's wonderful, but if all I'm doing is playing and/or ripping CDs, Windows Media Player is just so much easier for those tasks. It still ships with Windows 10. I just set up a Windows 11 machine here at home the other day so I'll have to check whether it's still hidden "in the bowels of Windows 11" just like it was in 10.
