There are several clients for Android which can connect to a vlc-stream.
VLC-direct and VLC-stream&convert are two of them. Here is a howto for
setting up VLC on a Myth-Backend for usage with Android clients:

But one question. How do you stream with Mythweb on Android? I have a
Motorola Xoom. Using Mythweb with the stock browser works well for
schedules, checking status etc. etc., but not for streaming. When I try
to stream a video or recording, an asx file is downloaded to the
SD-card, but it cannot be opened by any player I have installed (stock
player, RockPlayer, VLC-direct). Yes, Adobe FlashPlayer is installed on
the device, but the browser doesn't start it (it's not a separate app,
but a browser-plugin).
