You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest



i have been told to install epel 7 which i done
and nux-desktop which also tells me is installed

yet the errors carry on

any ideas?

The vlc packages you are installing are for 'Enterprise Linux 6', that is for CentOS 6. See the '.el6' in the installed vlc packages.

You need to change your nux-dextop repo.

Here is the proper procedure:
  1. Download the latest nux-dextop-release rpm from
    http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/
  2. Install nux-dextop-release rpm:
    # rpm -Uvh nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
  3. Install vlc rpm package:
    # yum install vlc

Also I hope you have install epel 7 as follows
Code:
# yum install epel-release

Each package name in your first post has an 'el6' in the name.
