The problem is that RTP/UDP packets from the server are not reaching your
client (VLC). Your firewall does, indeed, seem to be the problem.
A solution (other than fixing your firewall) is to request streaming of
RTP-over-TCP. RealPlayer (and QuickTime Player) requests this
automatically (if no RTP/UDP packets are received within a short period of
time). For VLC, however, you have to set this up explicitly.
As I noted in an earlier message:
This is supported as an option, but the mechanism for turning it on is
Settings -> Preferences... -> Modules -> access_demux -> livedotcom
Then click the "advanced options" check box
Then click the "Use RTP over RTSP (TCP)" check box.
