Hmm, there is currently no call in libalsaplayer that creates an
instance. What you can do for now is to do the following:
/* Fires up a new alsaplayer with session name "my instance".
Using some variant of the exec* C call is preferable. */
system("alsaplayer -s \"my instance\" &");
And then get the session id:
session_id = ap_find_session("my instance");
After that you can call the different ap_*_* with session_id.
I will add som kind of mechanism to create instances from libalsaplayer.
Note that these will still be separate processes.
