I recommend you having a look at the MobileVLCKit framework, which forms the technical base of VLC for iOS including the requested stream capabilities. It is licensed under the LGPLv2.1, so it is ok to use it within your own application like some are already doing on the iOS App Store if you comply to the license. Part of that license agreement includes that you need to share and publish changes you do against our code (if applicable), but there are more.

Anyway, MobileVLCKit is available through CocoaPods so you can easily deploy it and there is sample code available on http://git.videolan.org in the VLCKit.git to do basic tests and stuff.

You are welcome to email me on or off list for any help you might need.
