    Couldn't you either - make a playlist if you want to watch several movies.

    Or allow multiple instances of VLC - so you can have simultaneous video playback.

    My apologies, it appears that multiple instances feature is only in the Windows version of VLC. (I used VLC back when I lived in the dark side)

    It appears to be submitted on the feature request list for the OSX version - but I'd browse the videolan forums / wiki for more information on it.

    Didn't intend to mislead you there. :eek:

    open -n ?

    On OSX, you can start a multiple instances of any Application by using "open -n". For instance, to start a second instance of VLC, you would type

    open -n /Applications/VLC.app

    in the Terminal.
