Okay, so I've tried the following:

1) vlc file.mpg --sout udp://client
This works, but it chooses the output mux as TS.

2) vlc file.mpg --sout rtp/ps://client
This does not work.  As you stated, it seems VLC does not support PS 
over RTP.

3) vlc file.mpg --sout udp/ps://client
This also does not work, as it gives me "packet size > MTU" messages.

Method 1 is the only way I can get it to work.  Is it possible to get 
method 2 to work?  I would like to stream the original PS, I don't care 
about what protocol it uses, but I don't want it going through a TS mux, 
if possible.

Also, I just want to verify the format of the command-line:
vlc <file.mpg> --sout <protocol>/<output mux>://<client address>

Thanks again.
