The N900 port never reached "production" or "release" status. So I'm not
sure you should take it as a reference, unless VLC Android is only intended
as a PoC. I don't know what your requirements are, but it should not be
difficult to protect concurrent accesses with a static mutex.

It is entirely possible for VLC to try to spawn two video decoders. There
are video files on the Interwebs (e.g. some videos from the USGS) with
multiple video tracks, and VLC tries to decode all of the by default.
