I have a Raspberry Pi with a video in /home/user/documents directory. I would like to play this video on my computer by streaming it with VLC.

Can you help me?

I assume you have both connected to the same network. Have you tried enabling file sharing on your R.Pi (e.g. Samba, sshfs, etc.)? You should then be able to just open it using any video player after mounting on your computer. –  gertvdijk Jan 2 '13 at 21:00
