Since I am not a MAC person, I may not be able to help much with it. 
That said,

1) first make sure that you have VLC running on your machine.
2) You will need to put the VLC libs on equivalent of LD_LIBRARY_PATH on 
Solaris. I do not what it is on MAC. I would guess it is LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
as it is FreeBSD based.
3) You will need to recompile JVLC on your machine by tweaking makefiles 
- I may be able to help with this.
