How to Play Multiple Videos at Once

VLC Media Player

The easiest way to play multiple videos at once is to use VLC media player, a free and open-source software that can play almost any video and audio format. VLC media player has a feature called “synchronous playback”, which allows you to play another media file simultaneously with the main one. Here are the steps to use this feature:

  • Launch VLC media player. Go to Media > Open Multiple Files. Or press Ctrl + Shift + O.
  • Add the first video by clicking the Add button and browsing to its location.
  • In the Open Media pop-up window, check Show more options. Select Play another media synchronously.
  • Click the Browse button next to Extra media and select the second video.
  • Click Play. The two videos will be played at the same time and only a control window will be available, on which you can stop, pause, control the playback of the two videos synchronously.

If you want to play more than two videos at once, you can add more video paths to the Edit Options box at the bottom of the Open Media window, separated by #. For example, if you want to play three videos, you can type something like this:


You can adjust the file paths and the caching values according to your needs. Note that playing too many videos at once may cause performance issues or lagging, depending on your computer’s specifications.

How to Play Two Youtube Videos at Once

Another common scenario is to play two youtube videos at the same time, either for comparison or entertainment purposes. For example, you may want to watch two different covers of the same song, or two different reactions to the same movie trailer, or two different tutorials on the same topic. There are a few ways to do this, but here we will introduce two of the most convenient ones:

Method 1: Use a split-screen browser extension

There are many browser extensions that can help you split your screen into two or more parts, and play multiple youtube videos at once on each part. For example, you can use Split Screen for Chrome, which lets you drag and resize the screen parts, and choose the websites you want to display on each part. You can also use Split Screen for Firefox, which has similar features and options. After installing the extension, you can click on its icon on the browser toolbar, and select the layout and the websites you want to split. Then you can search for the Youtube videos you want to play, and enjoy them side by side.

Method 2: Use a Youtube video mixer website

There are also some websites that can help you mix two or more Youtube videos and play them at the same time. For example, you can use YouDJ, which lets you search for Youtube videos, and drag and drop them to the left and right decks. You can also adjust the volume, speed, and effects of each video, and create your own mashups. You can also use Youtube Doubler, which lets you enter the URLs of two Youtube videos, and play them simultaneously on a single page. You can also adjust the size, alignment, and start time of each video, and mute or unmute them as you wish.
