macosx: Improve the VLCMainVideoView

This MR reworks the VLCMainVideoView in several ways:

  1. The bottom bar view is no longer an NSVisualEffectView, but is transparent
  2. There is now a darkening gradient overlay and shadows on main control elements to make them more visible
  3. Added an NSVisualEffectView to simulate a titlebar over the video part of the video view
  4. Added a fade-in and fade-out animation rather than immediately showing/hiding controls
  5. Improved handling of conditions under which controls should be shown/hidden
