VLC already depends on zlib and GnuTLS. I don't see a need for anything 
else than those and a couple of weeks time.

Of course, it you want all the bells and whistles, such as TLS support, 
transparent stream decompression (both already in the HTTP module), HTTP 
version negotiation, optimized headers compression, connection reuse, 
push promise, recovery from pause... then there is a lot more work.
