[MPlayer-users] controlling multiple instances of MPlayer (Win7)

It's not the amount of code I'm worried about (although it's been about 10 years since I did any coding work myself). But I don't have a development environment and I was hoping I wouldn't need to solve software problems by developing my own solution...
But if it's the only way, then I'll create a multi-player-controller somehow.

It is strange though that no multi-video player exist.

Don't know how handy you are writing a few lines of code but if you 
spawn multiple instances you can grab stdin for each instance and feed 
it keystrokes separately. However, I found slave mode a bit coarse in 
terms of controlling the player but you might give it a shot. It's 
really just a few lines of code, whatever language you use.
