Your file should be MP4 format (no matter the codec, but MP4 muxer).
And you have to send it whith TS muxing.

Open vlc with :

vlc -I telnet --rtsp-host your_ip:port

Then open a telnet connection on 4212 port and type these commands :
new test vod
setup test input your_mp4_file
setup test mux mp2t
setup test enabled

Finally, you can play your file with another vlc and this address :

The only issue I have is that the seek bar in vlc interface does not move after

You can also try live555 rtsp server :

Vlc and seek bar are working fine in this case.
