try: rpm -qf /etc/pulse/codec.config
It will tell which package is owning the file.
Maybe you will have to choose between this package and vlc or temporarily remove the package.

First, anytime you ask a question tell us what distro you are using. Such as F8 64bit.

It looks like you are mixing repos (generally a bad idea). Please post the results of "yum repolist".

copy/paste the full yum error.

also check here:

Two separate commands. You are going to have to learn to be careful to follow instructions with linux. Even things like case (R Vs r) will dramatically change the meaning of a command.

I have 64 bit cpu and loaded 64 bit fedora-8, still I have faced same problem. Later I figured out that it's because of library conflict.
By removing pulseaudio-lib from installation and then installing vlc solved the problem for me. Try this..
<yum remove pulseaudio-lib>
and then install vlc ..
<yum install vlc>

http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2htm...ibfribidi.so.0

download fribidi-0.19.2-2.fc12.i686.rpm

rpm -ivh fribidi-0.19.2-2.fc12.i686.rpm

yum install vlc

It should work now

Note: you can't launch vlc from root account
