I think Odia is a different name for Oriya. You can chose how it will be 
displayed on videolan's website.

Variant A:
You can find the .pot file to translate here:

Save it as vlc.pot. You can find instructions on how to translate here: 

Use the software poEdit to edit the .pot file. You can find poEdit here: 

Save your modified file with all translations as or.po (or is the 
language code for Oriya), and then send it me.

Variant B:
I could also offer you the choice of using transifex. You would have to
create an account there and request the creation of a team for your 
language here (only if you _want_ to use transifex):


Some thoughts on this service:


There is a special mailing list for translations on videolan:
translators at videolan.org

Best regards
