Red Hat doesn't have VLC or the libraries needed. You can add the
rpmforge repository which does have VLC and more. This command will
set up the repo:
Code:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/`uname -i`/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.`uname -i`.rpm
Then this will install VLC:
Code:
yum install vlc

A valid URL for Rpmforge is
i386 http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-relea...l5.rf.i386.rpm

x86_64 http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-relea....rf.x86_64.rpm



But how about the "RealPlayerGold" : Everything is included, "no dependencies" :
EL 5 version http://www.real.com/realcom/R?href=h...ayer11GOLD.rpm

# rpm -Uvh --nodeps RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
Reason for --nodeps : Will ask for a non existing package 'lsb'.

What I would suggest is install wine and run winduhs binary. Works for me.
