VLC HowTo/Play multiple instances
In version .8.5 it was easy to have multiple instances of VLC playing each with its unique stream of data.
In version .8.6x playing multiple VLC instances and different streams in each is as easy as clicking Settings -> Preferences... (note this does not exist on the Mac version):
- Advanced (tick Advanced options to see all the options available)
- Allow only one running instance (untick it)
- This allows users to use more than one VLC player at a time. Once you've done the above you should be able to play as many VLC instances and video or audio files as you like.
