Applications/Multimedia does not exist, see the menu subpolicy.
About any applications that can deal with video can deal with audio since
most video have a sound component, so "Multimedia" is meaningless.
There is nothing that prevent a package to provide two menu entries, one
in Applications/Video and one in Applications/Sounds (maybe even with
differents settings) if the package is "known" as a sound-only player,
but this is not the case for vlc.
