You can have more than 6 tty if you want. Just edit as root /etc/inittab and
after these lines:
c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
append similar ones replacing tty6 with tty7, tty8, tty9, etc.
Be careful, a small syntax error in this file can prevent Slint to start <smile>
also you can type startx from any tty, currently this will use tty<n+6>
For instance if you type startx fom tty2 the X session will go in tty8.
You can even start several graphical sessions this way. That the minimalist in
you will probably will not like...

You probably know that, but you can as well use mpv as well as vlc in an xsession
