Yikes, I forgot to change the severity to a higher level.

Mistake, i forgot the "not" before the "explicitly".

Sorry

Thanks for the suggestions, yes I totally missed removing the vlc dependencies. I don't think the severity is any higher than low, as the worst harm here is pulling in some unnecessary dependencies that will soon be corrected. I've staged the changes for the next version bump but if that doesn't happen in the next week or so I'll push a new release.

I have to politely disagree.

- "libxcomposite" and "pipewire" are both needed for "linux-capture" but it's not explicitly said or put as non-optional dependencies

This is a hard break. OBS user who updated to the latest version, can not record they screen anymore. There is a unusually high count on support request in discord, because of missing one or both packages.

Not only their discord but their Github repo also receive issues because users of this package can't use linux-capture "anymore".

I think optional dependencies here is totally valid, and users not reviewing optional dependencies isn't really and issue, but there are two good points here; optional dependencies are not descriptive here, and actually you can argue this is an essential feature that should not be optional. So agreed, I'll add them to non-optional dependencies.
