probably not because any legal DVD player software has to be licensed by 
the DVD Forum to understand the decryption keys.   any use of 'cracked' 
keys is illegal, and Red Hat can't condone that.

you can just download the RPM from here
http://pkgs.repoforge.org/vlc/vlc-1.1.13-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm or

if you don't want to configure the repo.   there's also a mozilla plugin 
that enables playing videos embedded in firefox in that same folder.
