1st there is a huge difference between Red Hat 5(very old) and RHEL5(Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5). Since the rpm you have listed contain el5 I assume you are running RHEL5.

The errors you are seeing are becuase you are lacking those dependencies in order for the vlc rpm to run. The rpm command does not handle dependencies but fortunately the yum command does. But in order to use a new repo you have to add it to your repolist. Rpmforge(where you got the rpms from) has instructions on how to add its repo:

Repo=software repository, where the rpms are stored on RH's (and 3rd party) servers. IF you are going to use RHEL you need a base repo(where the basic system stuff is stored for yum to get stuff), essentially in order to run RHEL you need to have a paid RH subscription. The third party repos only have rpms that are NOT in the base repo, so you need a base repo to use them.

If you do not have or cannot afford the RHEL subscription, you should consider switching to Centos. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download/update (unlike RHEL) and is binary compatible with RHEL.
