If VLC is not playing your IP Streams then please check the following

 

1.Is your PC in the same Network range as your Stream? 

Encoder IP:192.168.1.168

PC IP: 192.168.1.100

2. Are you directly connected to the IP port of the Streaming Encoder?

 

3.Does VLC just stay a black screen but does not play the stream?

Please follow the pictures below to ensure your firewall is allowing VLC to play private streams

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.Does VLC gives you the following error message when you try playing the stream?

 

Check your syntax of the stream and ensure you typed it correctly

Ensure you are connected to the encoder and that your PC's IP is static such as 192.168.1.100

Check to see if your are able to log into your encoder

 

5. If all esle fails try a different PC with VLC using the same Firewall gudie above.
