Ive got some ripped dvd's in VOB format on my server. I want to stream these to another device I.e. another pc with VLC across my network. How?


On the server side:

vlc -I http --http-src /path/to/your/vobs

By this will serve videos using HTTP over port 8080, which might not be terribly efficient. If this becomes an issue, take a look at this superuser question for RTSP solution: Using VLC as RTSP server.

VLC can also act as a client for your vobs:

vlc http://localhost:8080/filename.vob

assuming /path/to/your/vobs/filename.vob exists and is playable by VLC.

Note! I could not get this to work with files that have spaces in their names.
