have you installed ffmpeg? that might help. when i dnf search libx264 it returns h264enc.noarch, so you might try sudo dnf install h264enc.noarch if installing ffmpeg does not help.

Running

dnf provides libx264.so.148

tells me that the missing package is provides by x264-libs-0.148-13.20160924git86b7198.fc25.i686 from rpmfusion-free repository.

I would have expected that dnf would take care of that. The only thing is that vlc comes from rpmfusion-free-updates and x264-libs comes from rpmfusion-free, but I assume both are enabled. Run

dnf repolist

to check.

Current versions are:

vlc.i686           3.0.0-0.28.git20170622.fc25           @rpmfusion-free-updates
x264-libs.i686     0.148-13.20160924git86b7198.fc25      @rpmfusion-free
