You probably don't really need to explore the API itself.  I did a
similar project to provide a service of a stream on demand which other
clients would be told they could connect to.  Setting this up with
just the command line options and/or vlc configuration file (vlc.cfg
or like .vlcrc), then all you need to do is fork a vlc instance to do
the service, and kill it when it needs to be ended. so if you have a
few scripts to like 'host_stream <parameter where>'  ... well on the
other side, just connect with your appropriate player.
