First Try installing by adding an * yum install vlc* -y if it dont work then
Do a yum clean all and then do yum list all.
Then yum search vlc and mplayer or even yum info vlc\mplayer. If nothing happens id advice you to add the livna & rpmfusion repositories. or try

tnx alot John i download the most codes for audio and then i used "yum install mplayer" and "yum install vlc" and it install fine , but after install realplayer i try to open it by clicking on it but not open ? and try to open music using vlc command it give me this error
[root@Hamzah-PC Desktop]# vlc Bang\ Bang.mp3
VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root and
cannot be run by non-trusted users first).

Don't run everyday programs AS ROOT , that is a big no-no
run it as a normal user.
