Always use the package manager to install the software to get away from the dependency hell.
YUM is the default package manager for RH based distros. Use it.
You will install vlc with YUM as

Code:
 yum install vlc

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>
.....

Sorry, I forgot this .....

The rpmforge repo is needed too :
https://rpmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using

... and click this link to get the repo package
http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-relea...l5.rf.i386.rpm
( if 'arch' is i386 )

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.

Goto the VLC website, it will tell you how to configure your repo. Then do a yum install.
