I have installed both free and non-free rpmfusion repos:

[javad@javad-pc ~]$ sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Use dnf repolist to check whether RPMFusion repos are enabled.

just to check try this way

gain root access than use ( su )

rpm -ivh https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...

rpm -ivh https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...

dnf update

dnf -y install vlc

OR you may try

wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/f...64/os/Packages/v/vlc-3.0.2-1.fc28.x8664.rpm

sudo rpm -Uvh vlc-3.0.2-1.fc28.x86_64.rpm

( VLC package can be found here http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/f... )

sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf update and then search for vlc again. Are you sure those repos are enabled? Take a look at /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo

Very strange, because you have already rpmfusion repositories...

Can you provide the results of the next lines?

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-free.repo
cat /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-nonfree.repo

Alternative you can install vlc easily from UnitedRPMs...
