On the VLC download site there is no CentOS 5.6 or 6.0 downloads rpm's. Which RPM can I use to have VLC 1.1.10? In case it's not available, can I simply use the same Fedora downloads?

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

Yes. You can always try and see if the dependencies match up reasonably.

CentOS is not targeted at the desktop market where VLC is expected to run. If you expect this to be a multi-media machine maybe you should be using Fedora or another distro that your favorite software plays nice with.

VLC in CentOS is not for playing mutlimedia, just to capture remote location "vlc -I dummy rtsp://ip/video --sout=file/ogg:/tmp/RECORDING.ogg" to local file system and send it to NAS server. Where CentOS is required so that it has maximum server performence (instead of desktop Fedora performence/realiability). –  YumYumYum Jun 5 '11 at 8:39
    
I just logged in to my CentOS 5.4, and did some yum search nothing related to VLC is found.

How about using mplayer/mencoder instead of vlc? You can undoubtedly get vlc compiled for CentOS just fine but it will be easier to upgrade and admin in the future if you stick to packages in the repos. –  Caleb Jun 5 '11 at 14:21
