I have got some http://.sdp, http://.3gp and http://*.mp4 files which can connect to internet and streams videos. Now I want to stream the videos using VLC player.

How to do this ?

I guess I don't understand the question. Does Media->Open Network Stream not work for you? If not, what doesn't work about it? – heavyd Jun 9 '11 at 5:38
@Heavyd - Yes you are 100% correct. This works very well. Then I want to save this link as some file and retrieve the stream from file. – MonkeyMind Jun 9 '11 at 6:02
If you mean you want to save the stream as a stand alone file which can be played without needing it to be streamed, just do a Google search for "save streaming media" etc. – Steve Jun 10 '11 at 4:43
