Welcome to LQ.
To be able to install multimedia packages
( and some required codecs ) it is usually
a good idea to set up the 'rpmfusion.org'
repositories : http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
"RPM Fusion free for RHEL5 or compatible like CentOS"
"RPM Fusion nonfree for RHEL5 or compatible like CentOS"
Then you will have a lot more to choose from when doing
# yum search <package>
Ok. Did you search for google for the error that you get while installing. What do you mean by no success? What are the errors that you face when trying to install vlc? You are not giving any information and want us to help you out which is not possible until you give some information.
