MPLS + TE two path two VPLS tunnels

hi.
OSPF + BGP between loopback addresses
BGP= only l2vpn (VPLS)

I need to make two VPLS tunnels (two clients) between R1 and R5
link R1-R3-R4-R5
and the link R1-R2-R5

I know that it's impossible to do in RouterOS simple.
There is an option to raise two TE tunnels and in these tunnels to raise the LDP and statics to create a VPLS, but it is very, very uncomfortable.

in HP there is a tunnel-policy which can be assigned to the VPLS tunnel

I'd like to draw your attention to the data case, as it strongly promotes the implementation of the RouterOS in the MPLS networks

It is certainly possible, you need tow sets of Loopbacks. TE tunnels and BGP peers on each set.
Then set up BGP VPLS and filter out one of RT NLRIs in routing filters for each peer.
Here is a step by step setup example:

this example.

real my network 17 router MPLS CCR1016
end 5000 clients, each need create vpls or to PPPoE server or to l2vpn service

each MPLS router has 2-5 links to other MPLS routers, not all of them.
all links are different in quality, respectively, different clients for different priorities and channels

very bad idea create 5000 loopback and 5000 peer its only one router ((((

I don't think MRZ is suggesting a loopback per subscriber but rather a pair of loopbacks so that you can set different policy for the path of the VPLS tunnel.

Yes, exactly.
If each MPLS router has 2-5 links, as you mentioned, then you need only 2-5 sets of loopback addresses.
