I initially tried VLC as a plugin (and stand-alone player) with and without Totem, but decided to uninstall it before installing mplayer.  Since mplayer and its browser plugin worked to my satisfaction, I never bothered reinstalling VLC.  My video and multimedia requirements are very basic anyway. So, I didn't need anything more sophisticated than mplayer.

I doubt if VLC will cause problems, if installed along with mplayer, as long as everything is configured properly.  Try.  You can always uninstall one or the other, if there are conflicts.
