Code:
$> su -
    #> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    #> yum install vlc
    #> yum install mozilla-vlc (optional)
Its from the VLC page for Fedora.

Fedora 13 : Not officially supported any more.
Fedora 15 and 16 only http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

But the repo is still there :
32bits http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...thing/i386/os/
64bits http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ing/x86_64/os/

So please try :
Replace the file /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo with
Code:
[rpmfusion-free]
name=RPM Fusion for Fedora $releasever - Free
baseurl=http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/13/Everything/<arch>/os/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
Edit <arch> to either i386 or x86_64.
Or install Fedora 16.

i think you can't update from 13 to 16,
you have to download fedora 16 image,
http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora
burn it to dvd and then install it,this will help you

RPM Find claims to have Fedora 13 RPMs.

I've not used the site myself.
