Hi! The answer from @aeperezt is easy to find - did you ask anyway because you wanted a more detailed explanation, or didn't understand the implications?

VLC is not include in Fedora repositories because it include codec that are non free as mp3 and some others. Same goes to Mplayer, both can be found on along with all require codecs.
