VLC cannot open the MRL

I have installed the VLC media player in Kubuntu 14.04, I understand that VLC can play acestream streams, but if I copy an acestream link from Wiziwig (football stream) I get a message that says VLC can't open the MRL.
I installed VLC from the Muon discover centre which I understand automatically installs required dependencies but should I have done something else.
