None of the live stream ip address links work. Do you have any others? It seems that one may be permanently​ shut down. In vlc player I tried http mms mmsh and rtsp, and none worked.

As of 2017/4/15 It is still working for me.  
Go to http://sptv.co.kr/  and in the scroll box on the right, click the second link down(평양방송):



KCTV is only broadcasting for about 6 hours on weekdays, and 14 hours on weekend.
KCTV weekday broadcast schedule is about 0800-1430GMT, Weekend schedule 0000-1500GMT.
There will be color bars between KCTV broadcasting times.

The direct stream link is mms://121.167.43.161/chosun and it also is still working for me.  I don't know about the VLC player, but when I just click on the dirct stream link, KCTV opens up in my Windows Media Player.

This site http://www.elufa-tv.net/live.html right now says it is off air. I will check it when KCTV is broadcasting and see if it is on air then.
EDIT 2017/4/17 - the elufa-tv site is streaming KCTV now. It is a bit iffy on availability - sometimes elufa is not streaming even when KCTV is on air. Plus Ustream throws in an occasional advertisment while you watch.

Is there any other known source for a live video stream of KCTV?

scratch  MisterAnon  - I don't know what happened to your entire post text - it erased when I quoted it.  I returned to your post the part that I  was quoting.   I dunno   Sometime this forum does strange things while editing.
Anyway:
Did you try the post by zneumann in this thread?  Some info on satellite feeds, I wouldn't know where else to look.

Wow thanks for all the links.  I didn't know about that YouTube KCTV stream - they just created the channel a week ago! I like how they describe their channel: "KCTV broadcasts the best colour television since 1974."
North Korea Best TV! kim jong-il

Ok, so it appears that the stream contains breaks within it. These occur every few minutes. I was wondering why every few minutes my VLC player stopped playing, as if I had hit the stop button, even when I hadn't hit the stop button. So I turned on the VLC player debug logs so I could see why it stopped the stream every few minutes. It turned out it was either getting an EOF (end of file) signal, or there wasn't a new chunk of data for too long of a period of time so it was THINKING that it had reached the end. Here's the applicable part of the debug log:
live555 warning: no data received in 10s, eof ?
core debug: EOF reached

So how do I make it keep streaming? Is the source of the stream intentionally cutting off viewers after a few minutes to prevent the server from getting clogged? Is it really so popular that people are flooding the server? Or am I unique in having this problem? If it's a common problem that others are having who are trying to view this, is there a fix for it yet? Please tell me how to fix this, if it's possible to do so.

Also do keep in mind that sometimes the YouTube stream hosted by the KCTV channel mentioned sometimes has cuts, etc but they are archived as VODs. The channel will often have a new stream link so do check here:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpNOyv82HxeojstfqYRSEQQ/videos?view=2&flow=grid

Most of the time, recordings aren't available but the link above will most likely lead you to the up to date stream link.

Also found a channel which is currently uploading full KCTV Broadcasts:

I don't know anything about that VLC media player, but the stream works fine for me on Windows Media Player, why not try that - or you could try the YouTube live stream that bman78 found - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpNOyv82HxeojstfqYRSEQQ/videos?view=2&flow=grid

If you still want to use VLC and it doesn't stream smoothly, you could ask for help on the VLC forum: https://forum.videolan.org/
