vlc --fullscreen --intf lirc <url> vlc:quit
the lirc interface works on linux, Mac Os X (if you compile lirc and vlc
from sources) and should  work on windows (if you port liblirc_client to
win32 api, and compile it and vlc from sources).

If this mean that your IR remote uses something else than lirc you should
probably drop the "--intf lirc" part of the command line, and rather setup
your IR remote to send the hotkeys available in the video window.

Hope this helps.
