Media server is great. I've set that up for a few churned that had some members that wanted to watch from home.

Vlc is a little harder to setup as it has many more options like transcoding and multicasting. So on a LAN you can push one stream and have 50 people subscribe without slowing down the server.

When I messed with media server it had more overhead as far as CPU and bandwidth.

Play with both and see if the ease o use fr media player I worth the missing functions in vlc.
