i made an application that stream an video from a live source to a particular ip address,but when i open the network stream through vlc it says unidentified format.My wireshark shows the following report:-

446 3.534718    192.168.0.1 192.168.0.2 IPv4    1314    Fragmented IP protocol (proto=UDP 0x11, off=0, ID=164f) [Reassembled in #447]
447 3.534773    192.168.0.1 192.168.0.2 UDP 90  Source port: 18886  Destination port: 18886
448 3.534785    192.168.0.2 192.168.0.1 ICMP    190 Destination unreachable (Port unreachable)
449 3.534804    192.168.0.2 192.168.0.1 ICMP    190 Destination unreachable (Port unreachable)

This program is running on some machines and not running on my machine what might be the cause of the problem?

"Destination unreachachble (Port unreachable)" means, that there is no service listening on UDP port (18886 ??) on the machine that reports the problem (192.168.0.2). Pleaase check that with "netstat -na" on 192.168.0.2. If it's a dynamic port, then something is wrong with your streaming config.

I don't see udp port 18886, so there is no process 'accepting data' on that port. I really think this is a VLC config problem.
