It's very simple. Use: vlc tcp:/// 
Tcp is not a standard protocol (using the menus) for vlc but it's running

Betreff: How to use VLC player as a client


I use a Linux PC as server and run gst-launch on this server. This command
streams webcam video to the client.
gst-launch v4l2src ! videorate ! capsfilter name=vfps
caps=\"video/x-raw-yuv,framerate=15/1\"  ! ffmpegcolorspace  ! jpegenc !
multipartmux ! tcpserversink name=out-sink host= port=5000 On the
client, run following command to receive the video. gst-launch tcpclientsrc
host=x.x.x.x port=5000 ! multipartdemux ! jpegdec ! autovideosink But Now I
want to use VLC Player, Totem Player, or other video player on the client,
instead of running the command above. I tried to use RTP and RTSP on VLC
player, but failed. Anyone has any idea? Thanks! Tom
