Great now we know your vls server, network and client setup are allright.

If you use vlc-0.4.6 as client then it should work.

On the vls start the same stream as you used with UDP testing and add 
--rtp to the start command, like this:

bozo > start mystream1 mychannel1 myinput1 --rtp

This starts a SPTS stream that is encapsulated inside RTP packets. On 
the client side you start vlc (from the commandline as):

$> vlc -vvvvvvv rtp://@:1234

Use -vvvvvvv and catch the output logging when the stream is not 
displayed properly and mail it on the mailing list. Then we can 
hopefully see what went wrong.
