I think the videolan.org repo should not be used anymore. vlc is
maintained in OBS, and the uncrippled copy is compiled in packman.
Disable the videolan repo and try this command:
zypper ar -c -K -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_13.1/ remote-packman

If that still fails, please post the output of
zypper lr -d
env -i zypper -v -v dup -l 2>&1 | tee vlc.txt
