I don't know if it can be done with VLC, but I'd like to point to the  
perlbal "re-proxy" feature (for potential inspiration to varnish).

The idea is that the proxy sends the request to the backend server,  
the backend server (typically a "smart" server with DB access and  
heavy memory footprint) authorizes the request and gives the proxy  
another URL.  The proxy then fetches the file from that URL  
(typically on a "dumb" server) and sends it to the client.
