Apple posts Mac OS X 10.7 and OS X 10.8 Installers
(These are earlier OS X versions than in Apple's How to get old versions of macOS.)
Apple's posted June 23, 2021 dated OS X 10.7 Lion Installer (4.72 GB) and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Installer (4.45 GB). Both say they are "available for older systems that are not compatible with the latest version of macOS". Each download page has software (previous OS) and hardware requirements listed.

(Often original old Apple installers/updaters have expired certificates. An old tip was to set the system date back to allow them to be installed.)

VLC Media Player 3.0.16 Update
The VLC 3.0.16 release page has details on fixes & improvements. (3.0.16 also adds Mac TouchBar support.) Mac version download at the VLC Media Player for Mac page. (Requires macOS 10.7.5 or later and a 64-bit Intel-based Mac. VLC for older OS X versions are listed down the linked page.)
