The album art in VLC's tooltip is not displayed fully compared to the real image in VLC.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. open a song that has an embed album art e.g. https://freeallmusic.top/track/7768-1462-1677/109 with VLC (or similar apps)
2. Hover the VLC icon on the panel to show the tooltip
The album art is not displayed fully.
The preview tooltip should display the album art fully, does not crop it.
Or background of the tooltip's title rectangle "VLC media player/ Dua Lipa - ..." should be transparent.
*** Bug 401233 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I think rather than being cropped, album art should shrink to fit task manager thumbnails. This would also be more consistent with window thumbnail previews.

[Task Manager] Do not crop album art in tooltip
- The standard aspect ratio of `albumImage` is always `1:1`. We should not crop the important part of `albumArt` in some cases.
- Hide the window title text of media players to avoid displaying the title/artist repeatedly.
Before vs After:
- Breeze Dark
- Breeze Light
