The first link underneath the Google search has some options for disabling it. None are registry based, but between the three there's an option for almost every deployment.

Edit: I had a little more time, so I did a second Google search for "disable auto update for vlc through registry"and the very first link says that no settings are stored in the registry.

VLC stores its settings in a binary file called 'vlcrc' which is located in the user profile tree, in '%AppData%\VLC'. Create that on the machine you're building your deployment package with and include it.

If you're re-packaging - and why wouldn't you? - use an advertised shortcut along with the usual self-healing feature set up so that clicking the shortcut installs the file for the logged-in user.
