I want vlc to open multiple instances if I open the app myself, but I want it to only open one instance if I select multiple files from the file explorer.
Previously (16.04) I think I had it working with this line in /usr/share/applications/vlc.desktop:
/usr/bin/vlc --started-from-file %U
And it does open only one instance if I open it with vlc --started-from-file file1 file2, but it does not work from the file explorer.
How can I make it work again in 18.04 ?
