Hi Chibuzor,

I like the project idea very much. I imagine the best way to go about this is to try to display the video on something in the OpenGL realm.

I would start out just trying to play two local video files simultaneously and from there.

Here are some references that might provide a starting point:
https://developer.android.com/reference/android/graphics/SurfaceTexture.html

Best,
shawn
