  •  For my version of vlc (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    There is a checkbox "Allow only one instance".  Uncheck that box.

    With "Show settings" set to "Simple":

    Tools -> Preferences -> Interface

    uncheck   "Allow only one instance"

    With "Show settings" set to "All":

    Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced settings

    Performance options
    uncheck   "Allow only one running instance"

    If you are opening vlc from a file, then in Advanced settings:

    Performance options
    uncheck   "One instance when started from file"

    I have not had to uncheck the "One instance when started from file", so I don't know if that will help.

    There are some command line options:

         --one-instance, --no-one-instance
                                    Allow only one running instance (default disabled)
         --one-instance-when-started-from-file, --no-one-instance-when-started-from-file
                                    One instance when started from file (default enabled)
         --playlist-enqueue, --no-playlist-enqueue
                                    Enqueue items to playlist when in one instance mode (default disabled)

      as videoLANwiki says:

      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

      and as I am on a mac, I will have to stick to quicktime, which is vlc but the apple version with wmp enabled in it...thanks again for the help.
