Use this filter to blend videos on top of another video. This can be used to create TV channels mosaics, setup a weather channel like stream (with the bluescreen video filter) and lots of other fun stuff.

Since VLC 0.8.6, you can also use the HTTP interface's mosaic wizard to configure a mosaic easily.
