A little more tinkering and I got it to work. Turns out I have itchy
mapped to the external ip address of my router with ports forwarded
under NAT. When I point vlc to rtsp://10.0.1.3:2346 it works like a
charm. The sync of multiple sets of speakers is pretty amazing!
On another note, what format is the sound mfd is sending over the wire?
It seems to use quite a bit more bandwidth than my airport express.
Would it be possible to use a reduced quality and have a lower bitrate?
Once I did finally get vlc pointed to the right place, I did
occasionally have some trouble with it getting confused. Mostly when
it had been playing for around an hour, it would start stuttering and
would not resume smooth playback unless I restarted mfd and vlc.
Otherwise sometimes in vlc on the mac, when trying to connect I would
get sometimes get no sound and all of the buttons would flash between
disabled and enabled.
Lastly, I can't wait for the "speakers" part of this. I might have
some spare time to play around with this in the next couple of weeks, I
think iTunes integration is high on my list of awesome things I could
do with this.
