I am keep failing in the installation process I have tried.

I have started process as follows.

yum install gcc dbus-glib-devel* lua-devel* libcddb
wget http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.0.7/vlc-2.0.7.tar.xz
tar -xf vlc-2.0.7.tar.xz && cd vlc-2.0.7
./configure

in the configure I am getting the error as follows

configure: error: Could not find libmad on your system: you may get it from http://www.underbit.com/products/mad/. Alternatively you can use --disable-mad to disable the mad plugin.
[root@localhost vlc-2.0.7]# 

So I went to libmad http location and downloaded it and while doing make it gave me the errors.There are no errors at ./configure with libmad but make not going through.

You can use RPM Fusion EL6 on your system. Got to http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration and install the repo in your system and then installed via Yum.
