Getting Video Lan Client to run on my x86_64 Fedora Core 4 Server

I was having a problem of getting VLC to run on my 64 bit FC4 server. I installed vlc through yum and everything installed beautifully but when running, it kept saying:

[someuser@myserver ~]$ vlc
VLC media player 0.8.4a Janus
[00000025] main interface error: no interface module matched “hotkeys,none”
[00000025] main interface error: no suitable intf module
[00000001] main vlc error: interface “hotkeys,none” initialization failed
[00000026] main interface error: no interface module matched “screensaver”
[00000026] main interface error: no suitable intf module
[00000001] main vlc error: interface “screensaver” initialization failed
[00000027] main interface error: no interface module matched “any”
[00000027] main interface error: no suitable intf module
[00000001] main vlc error: interface “(null)” initialization failed

The solution was to run vlc with the 64 bit libraries:
vlc –plugin-path /usr/lib64
