I am trying to stream a movie with VLC from my MacBook ( to my iPhone ( within my local network with UDP on the port 1234. So I open the streaming window and enter the IP address of my iPhone and set the port to 1234.

However, when I open the VLC app on my iPhone and enter udp:// I just see a black screen.

I tried to find the problem with Wireshark and see that VLC is successfully streaming the movie from my MacBook to my iPhone. But when I look up if my iPhone can establish a connection to my MacBook I just get Destination unreachable (Port unreachable).

I don't have the firewall activated, running the MacBook on the newest macOS version 10.15 (19A583) with Network Monitor. But even when I disable Network Monitor I get the same issue and just a black screen on my VLC app on my iPhone.

Does anyone has an idea on how to solve this problem?

Kind regards and thank you!
