Where did you look on your pc? Did you try Alt+F2 and then "vlc" (without quotes)? If you are unsure what repositories to install, read: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-suse.html

Normally, YaST only tells you it is successful, when it actually is. Maybe you did not look in the right folders...

hey buddy! I just installed VLC on my 2 OpenSuse boxes and it worked fine. I downloaded the file from the same source you used. I recommend to try to select the repositories that make sense if there is an error it would def come up.

give it a shot and see what happens.
Good Luck and HAVE FUN!!!
