You're right. Now it plays continueous but starts flickering at the end 
of each item.

Well, so I need to work around.

Wouldn't be possible to pre-initialize a libvlc_media_player_t for each 
movie and assign the same x window? They wouldn't play together, but one 
after one. That way the initialization could be done for the whole list.

I didn't find an 'unset' for libvlc_media_player_set_xwindow().

Thanks for your quick reply.

Kind regards,
