Is there a reason why you picked CentOS 5 for a new install? CentOS 5 was released in 2007 and all its packages date from that era. It has just over 2 years of support left before it goes end of life and only major security vulnerabilities will be patched between now and then. You would have been much better off picking CentOS 6 (EOL 2020) or CentOS 7 (EOL 2024) which were released in 2010 and 2014 respectively. On both, multimedia support is far better although I wouldn't recommend using totem on any of them. The nux-dextop yum repository has vlc available for both CentOS 6 and 7.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!

Yes, but it is easyer due to the net. If you can, plug your pc to internet, and install.
you need atrpm repo first.

It you cant, you can try deadbeef portable build. It is for music.
Or install mplayer package by hand:link
and smplayer the same. link

Use your install dvd as a repo. But you can still get dependency errors.
