Skype uses a custom Applications icon. I spotted that the other day
and thought it was a mistake!
Agree that VLC should use the default.

I use FastIcns to build the icns file. You feed it a high res image
and it scales it down to the various images required.
You can probably use this as the base, then tweak the lower-res images
manually if required.
