  2. I don't think so: since v7 you can only have 1 instance of
    the stand-alone player and an instance of the stand-alone
    player can only play 1 movie at a time. But you can run as
    many copies of the v6.4 player as you want (mplayer2.exe,
    you have it hidden in your system). However, there is a
    catch: movies are drawn onto the screen using hardware
    acceleration (overlay) but almost any video card supports at
    most 1 video overlay; the player will fall back to software
    rendering if the overlay is already in use, so this won't be
    a limit, but software rendering consumes a lot more
    processor time and the quality is usually lower if the video
    is stretched.

    : $347,000.00 in 5 month!!
    : I MADE JUST THAT! Don't believe it? Then stop reading, otherwise go on!!
    :This is a quick, easy, and easy way to get the things you've dreamed of.
    :So listen up
    : I came across an article that
    : said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial
    : investment of $6.00! Well, I thought, "Yeah, right, this must be a scam, how
    : stupid can one be to fall for that?" But I was curious, so I kept reading.
    I AM
    : GLAD I DID. Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and
    : address stated in the article. You then place your own name and address in
    : bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.
    : catch, that was it. The main difference between this system and others is
    that you
    : have a mailing list of 6 instead of 5... This means that your average gain
    will be
    : app. 15 times higher!!!
    : So after thinking it over, I thought about trying it. I figured what have
    I got to
    : lose except 6 stamps and $6.00? If you are worried about the legal aspects
    of it
    : all, check it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161). It is legal! I
    : invested the $6.00.............
    : Well GUESS WHAT!!... within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I
    : was amazed! I figured it would end soon, but it didn't. The money just kept
    : coming in. In my first week, I made about $20.00 to $30.00 dollars. By the
    : of the second week I had made a total of over $1,050.00!!! In the third
    week I
    : had over $11,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth month
    and I
    : have made a total of just over $347,000.00 and it's still coming in.......
    : certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I spent more than that on the
    lottery!! (and
    : I never won a single penny doing that!)
    : Let me tell you how this works and also, make sure you print a copy of this
    : article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. The
    : is very simple and consists of 3 easy steps. You may wonder why I tell you
    : It's only possible with your desire to become wealthy too. So go for it!
    : system REALLY works. It worked for me so far!!
    : Here are the steps:
    : STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each
    piece of
    : paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US$1.00
    : bills (or equivalent in your local currency) and place ONE inside EACH of
    the 6
    : pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope to prevent
    : thievery. Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them.
    : should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the
    : above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is
    : creating a service by this.
    : Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:
    : #1 B. Thatcher
    : 9421 Carter
    : Shawnee Mission, KS 66212
    : #2 C. Watts
    : 1237 Sumner Ave. Apt. E-3
    : N. Charleston, S.C. 29406
    : #3 C. Maruszczak
    : 525 Glenmore rd. north
    : Kelowna B.C.
    : Canada v1v2c7
    : #4 E. Hur
    : 68 Beech Street
    : Belmont, MA 02178
    : USA
    : # 5 Billy Tavarez
    : 4615 Versailles
    : Midland, TX 79703
    : USA
    : Tom t
    : 6941 hazeltine ave#9
    : Vannuys, ca 91405
    : STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other
    : names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as number
    : 6 on the list.
    : STEP 3: Change anything you need to. Now, post your amended article to at
    : least 200 newsgroups. (There is a bunch out there). All you need is 200, but
    : remember, the more you post, the more money you make! Don't know HOW to
    : post in the newsgroups? Well do exactly the following:
    : -----------------------------------------------------------
    : -----------------------------------------------------------
    : Step 1. You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
    : Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and click and hold
    : your mouse button. While continuing to hold down the mouse button, drag your
    : cursor to the bottom of this document and over to just after the last
    : and release the mouse button. At this point the entire letter should be
    : Then, from the 'edit' pull down menu at the top of your screen select
    'copy'. This
    : will copy the entire letter into the computers memory.
    : Step 2. Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of
    the blank
    : page. From the 'edit' pull down menu select 'paste'. This will paste a
    copy of the
    : letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list. Remember to
    : eliminate the #1 position, move everyone up a spot (re-number everyone
    : positions), and add yourself in as #6.
    : Step 3. Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your
    : in different sittings, you'll always have this file to go back to.
    : ----------------------------------------
    : ----------------------------------------
    : Step 4. Within the Netscape program, go to the pull down window entitled
    : 'Window' select 'NetscapeNews'. Then from the pull down menu 'Options',
    : select 'Show all Newsgroups'. After a few moments a list of all the
    : on your server will show up. Click on any newsgroup you desire. From within
    : this newsgroup, click on the 'TO NEWS' button, which should be in the top
    : corner of the newsgroups page. This will bring up a message box.
    : Step 5. Fill in the Subject. This will be the header that everyone sees as
    : scroll through the list of postings in a particular group.
    : Step 6. Highlight the entire contents of your .txt file and copy them
    using the
    : same technique as before. Go back to the newsgroup 'TO NEWS' posting you
    : are creating and paste the letter into the body of your posting.
    : Step 7. Hit the 'Send' Button in the upper left orner. You're done with
    your first
    : one! Congratulations...
    : --------------------------------------------------
    : --------------------------------------------------
    : Step 4. Go to newsgroups and select 'Post an Article'.
    : Step 5. Fill in the subject.
    : Step 6. Same as #6 above
    : Step 7. Hit the 'Post' button.
    : -------------------------------------------
    : THAT'S IT! All you have to do is jump to different newsgroups and post away,
    : after you get the hang of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each
    : MINIMUM OF 200**
    : That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within
    : You may eventually want to rent a P.O. Box due to the large amount of mail
    : receive. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as
    long as
    : the postman will deliver it.
    : Now the WHY part: Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very
    : low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now,
    : each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
    : postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the
    : original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200
    : MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an
    : additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the
    : MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will
    : make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 625
    : persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and they each only
    : receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will
    : deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5
    : per 200 newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With a original
    : of only $6.00! AMAZING! And as I said 5 responses is actually VERY LOW!
    : Average is probable 20 to 30! So lets put those figures at just 15
    responses per
    : person. Here is what you
    : will make:
    : at #6 $15.00
    : at #5 $225.00
    : at #4 $3,375.00
    : at #3 $50,625.00
    : at #2 $759,375.00
    : at #1 $11,390,625.00
    : When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting
    in the
    : newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your
    : at number 6 again( That's what I am doing), and start posting again. The
    thing to
    : remember is, do you realize that thousands of people all over the world are
    : joining the internet and reading these articles everyday, JUST LIKE YOU
    are now!!
    : So can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think so... People
    : have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one sends you the
    : money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are
    : tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the
    : internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try?
    : Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands
    : of those joining the actual internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and
    : HONESTLY and this will work. You just have to be honest.
    : Make sure you print this article out RIGHT NOW, also. Try to keep a
    : list of everyone that sends you money and always keep an eye on the
    : newsgroups to make sure everyone is playing fairly. Remember,
    : HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. You don't need to cheat the basic idea to make
    : money!!
    : GOOD LUCK to all and please play fairly and reap the huge rewards
    : from this, which is tons of extra CASH.
    : **BY THE WAY, if you try to deceive people by posting the messages
    : with your name in the list and not sending the money to the rest of the
    : people already on the list, you will NOT get as much. Someone I talked
    : to knew someone who did that and he only made about $150.00, and
    : that's after seven or eight weeks! Then he sent the 6 $1.00 bills, people
    : added him to their lists, and in 4-5 weeks he had over $10k. This is the
    : fairest and most honest way I have ever seen to share the wealth of the
    : world without costing anything but our time!!! You also may want to buy
    : mailing and e-mail lists for future dollars. Please remember to declare
    : your extra income. Thanks once again...
    : "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
