I use omxplayer to play videos. But omxplayer can play one video at same time. I typed omxplayer 1.avi --win 0,0,500,500 on terminal and first video started. After that I typed omxplayer 2.avi --win 500,500,900,900 on different terminal and it said Have a nice day. How can I play different videos at same time ?

my system is : Linux alarmpi 4.1.6-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Aug 22 12:18:37 MDT 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

you can use omxplayer --layer n option where n means the priority. higher number means top layer.

on first tab run omxplayer --layer 1 --win ..... and on second tab run omxplayer --layer 2 --win ......

second video will be on top of first video.
