multiple instances of VLC when "allow only one instance"
|||VLC media player||
Binary package hint: vlc
Opening multiple files by right-clicking in nautilus and selecting "Open with VLC media player" causes several vlc processes to run. There is no one-to-one relationship between files and processes: one process might end up with one file in its playlist, while a second has thirteen. Opening the same set of files the same way twice will not necessarily result in the same amount of processes.
So far I've seen this on groups of mp3, ogg vorbis or AAC files and a group of mixed video formats.
The option "allow only one instance" is active, the D-Bus control interface checkbox is ticked, and dbus-daemon appears to be running.
When VLC is playing and I open one or more files, behavior is as expected.
