$ vlc -Idummy --no-mouse-events --no-keyboard-events <URI>

By the way, vlc --longhelp --advanced prints a list of all available
command-line arguments along with their documentation.

Note that this is not a user support list, please use the web forums at
http://forum.videolan.org/ for that purpose.

Best regards,
