VLC checks the continuity counter and missed some TS packets, It looks 
like it missed *a lot* of packets at least 16, but perhaps a multiple. 
This might indicate that the bandwidth required to sent the stream is 
not available on your network. Is this a WLAN ?

I suspect it requires too much CPU cycles to decode the stream. What are 
the options you encoded the MPEG with?

Is it MPEG 1/2/4?

Please provide more details.
