#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5

and change it to this:

#mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
just edit for 'base' only or to all

The proble myou posted was for extras not base. I still think you'll find it end up working as it was.

Go to rpmforge.net, and carefully follow the instructions to add their repo. vlc is in there and you can then just do "yum install vlc"

Actually i didn't meant ^tester ^ to use that link, instead i asked him to use similar link meant for his type of operating system(namely Cent OS) which he'll be finding it in ther vlc website,so only i specifically quoted it in braces that i used SUSE 11.

Unfortunately that's not what you said in your original post, and given the OP pretty clearly struggles with a lot of the concepts here is most likely to follow your advice verbatim

I believe you need to install yum-priorities. I don't use it myself. What are you trying to achieve?

You may find that yum-fastestrmirror is useful though

In either case, just install with

yum install yum-priorities

etc.
