livna repository


I'm using fedora 8.
Can you tell me how to install vlc player.
I enabled livna repository using the following steps :
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/*
rpm -ivh
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

After that i run the command yum install vlc
But i cant complete the installation process ,in fact i get the following

yum install vlc
livna 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 4.3 kB 00:01
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 4.9 MB 00:00
updates-newkey 100% |=========================| 2.3 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 3.7 MB 03:11
updates 100% |=========================| 2.6 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 2.2 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package vlc available.
Nothing to do
[root@localhost ~]#

I want to make this clear:
1. You want to install plugins from RPM use rpm -ivh your-rpm-name.rpm (no need to configure any binary packages)

2. You want to check your modem whether supported or not. Check this

3. You want to install any packages from livna or any Fedora 8 repos. You can't since Fedora 8 is no longer supported.

As alternative for #3 you can install from sources.
