I think you need to have some different repositories like Livna included in your repo list.
The three listed do not have VideoLanClient available as a download.
Go here.

LIVNA (http://rpm.livna.org/configuration.html)

If you went to the Livna site and read this part:

To start using the rpm.livna.org repository with Yum, Smart, or APT-RPM (with repomd support), simply install the livna-release-5 rpm package:

Then copy and paste in a terminal:

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

Then in a terminal:

yum install vlc

If you dont already have a graphical package installer use "yumex".

yum install yumex

yum install gnome-yum
