Depends on what you are going to use it for.

GStreamer is library used by number of Audio-video apps.

VLC is Audio-video app with it's own codecs (as I recall).

So if you will use VLC for listening to MP3 and similar proprietary 
formats installing VLC will be enough.

If you prefer some other app, like Amarok, Totem,... for MP3, etc... 
then you need underlying library of codecs (GStreamer, xine,..).

More then one repository has both vlc and GStreamer, but I suggest using 
rpmforge/repoforge[1]. Install their release package and use yum to install.
