I had been stuck for months trying to get VLC installed. Numerous dependency errors with Yum. After losing sleep trying to track down each missing library, I gave up.....until last week. The solution for me: 1) Edit the Livna.repo file and comment out the "#exclude=mplayer* mencoder* ffmpeg*". (Added the "#") 2) I could then install VLC ("yum install vlc") 3) Returned to the Livna.repo file and edited the file back to it's original state. (remove the "#") Hope this helps at least one person out there.
