Run VLC from the desktop, open the message window, open the stream from the menue, let it run for a moment and stop it with the "s" key. Then have a look at the messages. That might give you a hint.
I have been streaming 720p HD TV across my local network to VLC in the RPi (using http) and it works more or less; I have overclocked to 1000/500 (also core, and h-264). But you MUST disable resampling, because that seems to need too much CPU. I'm still getting 15% idle when displaying the stream, so it's a bit below the RPI's limit. (With omxplayer I get 80% idle time). Bit rate is about 12 - 14 MBit.
I am posting in this because I am trying to do something similar (udp stream with omxplayer) and hoping to get some advice.
I am trying to stream live tv from hdhomerun tuner to rpi. I also want to "pause" and "rewind"
the stream. will vlcplayer built following your suggestion support pause/rewind ?
