As Ludovic / etix said, we (vlmc team) used this a lot, without any problem.
The only thing that was a problem for us was multiple media, which,
once cloned, share the same input_item, that holds the media options,
which force us to create a bunch of media with independent input item
to avoid strange things to happen... but I guess this is off topic.
To put it in a nutshell : one instance and many players works well.
