1.6 VLC eats my buffer cache, how to I use raw device ?
-----------------------------------------------------
If you don't know what is a raw device, don't even read this answer :-).
There is an experimental support for raw devices in libdvdcss. It needs
that you set up a raw device pointing to your DVD device (under Linux,
use the "raw" utility). Then pass the raw device as second argument, for
instance :
vlc dvd:/dev/dvd@/dev/raw0
1.7 How do I use VLC as a client for VLS/VLMS streaming ?
-------------------------------------------------------
First you must set up a VLS or VLMS stream. Please refer to the
documentation of these programs. Then start VLC :
vlc udpstream:
You shouldn't need any option. If you're paranoid and want to control
everything, here is the exact syntax :
vlc udpstream:[<server>[:<server port>]][@[<bind address>][:<bind port>]]
