I never understood why Microsoft won't allow you to run multiple WMPs at once. I have to switch to VLC if I want to play another movie while keeping my first movie paused. It's a nuisance. Ya know, VLC won't let you play more than one either. That's strange.
Don't tell me it's because of some resource/processing limitation either. If a computer can handle a game like Crysis, I would think it could handle two WMPs at once. Right now, I can have WMP playing a movie and VLC playing another. Just think what would happen if I got Winamp into the mix. Three motherfucking movies at once, BOOYAH!!!
