forgot to say that you have to start vlc like this:
vlc -I rc --rc-host=localhost:1234

here is a thread on the videolan forum regarding the video issue under  
os x

if anyone finds a fix post here please.

also the python code is just a working proof-of-concept and proper  
error handling should be added (if the connection drops for example).
