fc5 yum getting http 404 error


I issue the below and get this http error.
I know the network is good, posting now.
Is this a repository issue and if so, what other sites can I use.
Not sure where this setting is for the http site.
Thanks for any help

yum list
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
vlc-contrib [1/7]
http://download.videolan.org/pub/vid...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Fri, 02 Feb 2007 20:02:27 GMT

A 404 error indicates that the file does not exist on the server. I've tried to load your link and even when I delete the trailing :, it still gives me a 404. The sad truth is that file simply does not exist on that server.

I'm a Debian guy so I'm not really sure how to 'refresh' (apt-get update to us Debian folk) your sources list, but there must be some way to do so.

Any RPM'ers out there want to give it a kick?

i moved the vlc repos out to another directory and enabled all the fedora repos and it ran just fine. Thanks for the input.
