Problems installing VLC

I'm having a bit of trouble installing VLC onto my Fedora3 system. When I try to run the RPM, it says I am missing the following packages:

These are a lot of dependency errors for just one program. Is there one library that could install of them at once? Or do I need to go searching? Also, I tried looking for the files *.so.0 online and I could not find any of them? Does anyone know what to do?

This is why you use Yum to install and update stuff; it resolves dependencies for you. You need to first add the third party repo you're using to your Yum repos. Then just do "yum install whatever".
