On OS X:

Run the output of VLC through soundflower (set it as the default output in AudioMIDI utility), then into live apply the VST you want and set th output in live to be the actual output you want.

On Linux, you could do this through Jack - replacing Ableton for Rosegarden or similar.

Windows, no idea - does it have something like soundflower?

Doesn't VLC support Winamp DSP plug-ins? If so, there is a VST host for Winamp. But don't ask me, I don't use VLC or Winamp :-)
