I think he is
concerned that you might have downloaded the source using
http instead of https. That concern is easy to check by downloading the
source via https and comparing the hash of the source in the rpm.
A worse problem is that by default, vlc redirects to mirrors, that do
not all use https, and the nightly versions are not signed. So he is
suggesting that Fedora not use nightly versions - as there is not an
easy chain of trust. However, the chain of trust can still be checked
by manually downloading via https and not using a mirror.
