networking – How do I play camera UDP multicast stream with VLC


Hi I’ve got an Ethernet camera that sends out a UDP stream. Here’s the info from a packet that wireshark captured. What do I need to do to be able to play the stream with VLC?

Internet Protocol Version 4, Src: 172.16.55.113, Dst: 239.194.55.113
    0100 .... = Version: 4
