there are a bunch of prerequisites
that will need to be installed by hand , then there is the issue that a non paid for rhel5.1
has not had any of the recent security fixes installed ( they are in the rhn - the paid for access to )
are you prepared to install all of these by hand ?- some are in the default rhel but might be the wrong version
( in red at the bottom of the page )

you might -- but with out the normal updates ?? it might work ?
fallow the centOS guide and use the cent updates repo and the cent epel
but you might kill the system if you are not VERY VERY VERY careful

-- but if you are going to use red hat then pay for it or install and use CentOS

First of all let us know if you are using licensed version of RHEl or not, so that we can guide you to proceed further.

I would recommend you to install the following package,so that it will configure your repository automatically.

* Download the rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
then install the following dependency packages for vlc

* Download the fribidi-0.19.2-2.el5.x86_64.rpm
* Download the arts-1.5.4-1.x86_64.rpm

after done all the above steps now install vlc using yum from your bash shell.

#yum install vlc

The installation process will go on now.

use the vlc.

The OP hasn't made a post on this forum in over two years, I doubt he even still has this problem, and probably won't see this thread anyway.
