i guess you use redhat enterprise 6 ? vlc is probably not in the official repos due to copyright law... you can probably enable the rpmfusion.org repos and run
Code:
sudo yum intall vlc

It is indeed in the rpmfusion repository.
http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
Note the requirement to enable EPEL first. You also need to set priorities (1 for RH, 2 for EPEL, and 3 for rpmfusion) to prevent breaking your system:

VNC or VLC

two very different things

Also there is NO operating system called
"Linux Enterprise 6 "

there is a NOT free commercial OS that you have to pay for called RHEL6.5
" RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.5 "
but you have yo buy the required !!! support contract to install software
