Mac OS X

On the Mac, running multiple instances of VLC is not supported out of the box.

As a workaround, you can create a Droplet that behaves as expected. Paste the code below into a new AppleScript Editor script and save it as an application. Launch the app to get a separate instance of VLC, or drop one or more files onto it.

In order to open AppleScript Editor, just search that using spotlight. Most importantly, saving it as an application when you save the file. There are drop-down options whilelist saving it.

on run
    do shell script "open -n /Applications/VLC.app"
end run

on open theFiles
    repeat with theFile in theFiles
        do shell script "open -na /Applications/VLC.app " & quote & (POSIX path of theFile) & quote
    end repeat
end open

After creating this app, all you need to do is clicks the app icon as many time as you want. It will create multiple VLCs then enjoy.

 

VLC 한글 자막 설정 방법.

VLC 한글자막 설정은 아래 내용대로 따라가면 됩니다.
우선 [ Interface ] 에서 advanced option을 볼 수 있게 체크
* [ Video > Subtitles/OSD > Text Renderer ] 에서 폰트를 설정
- /usr/share/fonts/truetype/unfonts/UnDotum.ttf로 골라주면 제일 무난합니다.
* [ Input / Codecs ] 에서 Subtitle Tracks를 0으로 해주면 동영상 재생시 자막을 자동으로 불러온다
* [ Input / Codecs > Other Codecs > Subtitles ] 에서 Subtitle text encoding을 CP949로 변경
* [ Subtitle/OSD ] 에서 Force subtitle position을 적당히 변경해준다 (30 혹은 40이 적당함)
