Try opening the files directly from folders, not the Places menu. In VLC, you can add entire folders to the Media Library. Click View -> Playlist (or Ctrl+L), then click Media Library. After that, right-click in the blank playlist area and you can add files and folders. If that doesn't work, tell us what version of VLC you are using (Help -> About).

UNDF is an undefined file. This may be because it is corrupted, or it is still in the process of being downloaded, and therefore vital information is missing. It is not a file type.
Basically, wait until download is finished, or if it's corrupted, just delete it.
