Feature Request: locking a screen for fullscreen video support

Currently, if I maximize a video on one of my monitors, I am unable to click on another monitor without the video exiting fullscreen mode.

Is there a way to fix this?

This is entirely dependent on the player. the only way to get the requested behavior is to use Media Player Classic, and under optionsplayback you can manually define which monitor it will maximize to, and this option has had the best results for me. Best of luck to you.

Kevin, you don't think there's a way to make a hotkey that hides mouse clicks from a certain monitor? I mean, even YouTube doesn't work.

Absolutely not. This goes well beyond the scope of DisplayFusion. It is part of each individual program that adjusts the video for focus loss. Maybe if Jon can make certain windows think they always have focus, but I extremely doubt he will take this up. you would be better off going out and finding another program to makes windows think they always have focus.

Kevin is correct, this varies by video player. There are hacks out there to make Flash videos stay fullscreen, but they're very messy and difficult to maintain. :)

Thanks for your reply. While I have your attention, I have one more feature request. I searched and couldn't find any information about it.

Is it possible for you to enable taskbar pinning on the DF bar? That would be hot.

That is planned, but not currently supported. :)
