They should be the same program, just built in incompatible ways.
Livna makes an effort to build against the available packages
in the fedora core/extras repositories and never replace them
with conflicting versions.  If you follow this mailing list
very long you will see problems mentioned regarding most of
the other third-party repositories and incompatible dependencies.
If you take a stock FC4 and add only the livna repository,
vlc will install along with all the dependencies, most of
which will be pulled from extras.
