This manual page documents briefly the VLC wrapper to open privileged network ports. The ports it can open are 80, 443 and 554.
They will be passed to VLC with no modification.
The preferred way is to use sudo :
$ sudo vlc-wrapper --option1 --option2
You can also set the SUDO_UID environment variable:
# SUDO_UID=1000 vlc-wrapper --option1 --option2
