Should VLC be installed before Handbrake?

Description of problem or question:

a) Should VLC be installed before Handbrake?
b) Do I even need VLC to use Handbrake?

Operating system and version: macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra

HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** [/b] (see How-to get an activity log)

HandBrake does not use VLC. As it stands, there is no official support for copy protected sources in HandBrake. 3rd party software of your choosing is required.
