VLC dependencies on RHEL5


I'm isntalling VLC on RHEL5 via
Code:
sudo yum install vlc
this gives me the following dependencie errors
Code:
--> Processing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3()(64bit) for package: vlc
---> Package x264.x86_64 0:0.0.0-0.4.20101111.el5.rf set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
vlc-0.9.9a-7.el5.rf.x86_64 from rpmforge has depsolving problems
  --> Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3()(64bit) is needed by package vlc-0.9.9a-7.el5.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
Error: Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3()(64bit) is needed by package vlc-0.9.9a-7.el5.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
so then I type
Code:
yum install libdvdread
to which I get
Code:
Package libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
Any help?

# yum remove libdvdread*

Next : Disable the 'epel.repo', which installs the 4.1.3 version.
( enable=0 )

# yum install libdvdread :
Now the rpmforge version libdvdread-0.9.7-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm is installed.
Provides libdvdread.so.3 .
