Your are attempting to install from a fedora-19 rpmfusion repository.

So you should either:

  • remove rpmfusion-free-release-19 and set instead rpmfusion-free-release-18, then retry VLC installation

  • or - probably best - first upgrade to current fedora release, then install rpmfusion-free-release-20 and VLC.

Please upgrade to a supported Fedora release.
