VLC and IPTV

I'm new to the topic of IPTV
I've installed VLC and have got a few sample Playlists and am trying to access udp://@233.166.193.14:5000
I've port forwarded port 5000 on my Netgear DG834G but I can't anything to work
Can someone guide me through the pitfalls in getting this sort of thing to work !

Re: VLC and IPTV

I have a sneaking suspicion from looking at this some time ago, that VLC will only do this sort of thing when running under Linux. Under Windows, I think it may be restricted to playing local files only.
Don't rely on that too much, but it may give you a starting point for further research.
