In my understanding, DVB-H is very different from DVB-(C|S|T). It multicasts 
RTP "natively" over UDP/IPv6. Especially there are no Transport Streams.

VLC cannot handle it because its built-in SDP parser is incapable of handling 
multiple streams as well as non-static payload types. Live555 is incapable of 
handling it because it does not support IPv6.
