Follow the simple instructions to add the rpmfusion free and non-free repositories on your system.

VLC will then appear in your package manager and you can install from there, or you can install from the command line as root with :

yum install vlc

or as non-root with :

sudo yum install vlc

@cobra is correct. I've just extracted the instructions from his link to and put them below. The assumption is that you're using Fedora 20. Hope this helps...

$ sudo yum install
$ sudo yum install
$ sudo yum install vlc
