Interesting--when I search for vlc, there's no vlc package available.
However, if I go to the nux repo and look in packages, the same place where
I got vloc-core, I assume, I see it.  So, downloaded it, running yum
against it didn't work, but doing rpm -ivh installed it.  And, as you said,
I now have the GUI interface.  I wonder why it doesn't show as available
when I do yum search?  That is, I see vlc-core, vlc-debug and so on.  Once
I've installed the rpm, it does show up in yum search, but prior to it
being installed, it doesn't.

At any rate, your solution fixed my issue, thank you.
