I want to stream a video over the local network from VLC and the receiver must be able to play it on a device using the given URL, not necessarily other VLC.

Like you would open a stream link in any default player or even any browser that opens the player appropriately.

Say I want to play the video by entering the URL into say my Android's default browser window and it automatically opens MX Player or something to play it.

How can I achieve that with VLC?

Please do not recommend other VLC players or dedicated apps.
