adobe-linux-i386/filelists                               | 139 kB     00:02 [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Like FranciscoD_ said, it's a problem with your Adobe repository configuration.

Even so you can install VLC as follows:

Install rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

su -

rpm -ivh

yum install vlc

yum install mozilla-vlc (optional)

VLC is not available in the Fedora repositories. I'm assuming he's already got RPMFusion set up before attempting the install command stated in the question.

However, for me, this answer was the helpful one :)

yum --disablerepo=adobe* install vlc

It's an adobe repo issue, not a fedora issue.
