Is it possible to watch 2 movies at same time on linux?

Is there a way to do this? When I try to launch second movie it just says some other process is using the Xvideo port (with mplayer).

Out of interest I would like to know.

Works without problems for me. If you are using some kind of hardware accelerated display, it might depend on your video card. Maybe you could try it using another video output driver. See 'mplayer -vo help'.
