You already have this version installed

According to your priorities and available versions this is the 
"candidate" version.

And these are the available versions with their priorities and origins.

I can't spot anything wrong in here. A "bigger hammer" approach would be 
to do this

    apt-get install -t wheezy-backports vlc vlc-nox libvlccore7

If this works it might be worth reporting it to the debian-backports 
mailinglist, CC the maintainer of the backport.

Kind regards,
Andrei
