Comment (by DonMoir):

 By the way, I have many more things to do then dealing with ffmpeg.
 Finding bugs in ffmpeg can take a lot of time. Reporting them sometimes
 takes even more time then it took to find them.

 I could spend all the time working just with ffmpeg but I can't afford to
 do that.

 It seems quite reasonable to me that if I point you to the actual bug
 which may have taken days to find, someone could spend an hour on it
 rather than wasting time on this ridiculous correspondence.

 You would need tools that can spin off multiple instances of a file in
 multiple threads and play them at the same time for this particular
