This quick post is as much for your benefit as for the benefit of my memory...
To stream RTMP with VLC, you'll need rtmpdump, which you can get here: http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/. I used rtmpdump-2.4-git-010913-windows.zip, though you may be able to use the latest version. I also had VLC 2.0.6 32-bit installed. Once installed, you can run the following from a cmd window:
rtmpdump.exe -r "rtmp://your.domain.com:1935/yoururl/here" -v -o - | vlc.exe -
This worked nicely for me. YMMV. Good luck!
