I would go with the ProRes 422 (HQ) codec so you can get into an intraframe codec. (And for future reference, XDCam HD is also GOP, so if you shot in that codec, you’d want to transcode that footage on the import as well)
I dunno what a VLC player is, so I can’t help you there. I would try exporting your ProRes timeline has a different format and try to use that for your VLC player.
