in my setup VLC transcodes incoming video in whatsoever format to flash 
video. True, there is no RTMP support in vlc, but running both programs 
on the same machine it is possible to handle the data flow from vlc to 
Red5 over the filesystem or with pipes (or even over http).
VLC is definitely a server as much as it is a client.
