I have all options related to "only one instance" set in vlc. Namely the ones in the picture below:

vlc options

  • Allow only one running instance
  • Use only one instance when started from file manager
  • Enqueue items into playlist in one instance mode

Why is it, that I still get many vlc windows, when I have marked multiple files in nautilus and open them? Am I missing something or is this a bug?

Using vlc 2.2.7 from GNOME nautilus 3.26.2 on GNOME Shell 3.26.2, all while on Manjaro (Archlinux).
