I am using Centos 5.5. When I try,

yum install vlc

I got vlc version 0.9.9a which is very old with lot of bugs. Is there a way to get the latest version of VLC? I have already tried

yum update vlc

It says "nothing to update" which is not correct as the recent version of VLC is > 2. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
