Re: vlc mobile remote
Figured out how it works:
I use VLC Direct pro on the android side. If you want to play a file, it sends a GET request to the HTTP server on 8080 to setup a RTSP stream, with the name of the file, protocol and (android side configurable) port number. The VLC server creates the stream and waits for connection, so it will fail if blocked by firewall.
So you cannot avoid to open two ports: 8080 and the one configured in VLC direct pro.
