I'm trying to get a RTMP stream to play on VLC and the URL is in this format:
I'm able to record the stream with CooJah but I only want to watch it via VLC. Any ideas?

On Mac/OSX, I was able to get this to work with a modification of Unnikrishnan's answer. The important part being the path to the VLC executable (which may vary by system)
rtmpdump -r rtmp://path/to/stream | /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC -
rtmpdump -r rtmp://path/to/stream --live | /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC -
You should then see a VLC window open, with
fs://0 listed in the playlist area. Double-click that entry to view the actual stream.
