full screen problem..

madLyfe's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
not sure if this is a problem or a feature that i am missing in the settings. on a dual monitor setup, if i drag say a video to my secondary monitor to watch while i work on my primary monitor and put the video in full screen on the secondary monitor, if i click anywhere on the primary monitor to do work, the video goes out of full screen on the secondary monitor.

It depends on what you use for watching, the windows support for this is insanely buggy, and I don't thing DF is slated to have any support for this. What are you using, I may be able to help you....

the only things i do full screen are videos.. and most of them are videos embedded into websites... all diff styles and players... but yes it does do it with the likes of GOM player and WMP too...

Good luck with all those you listed, the only way I have gotten it to work is VIA Media Player Classic, it has an option on which screen it will FS, and this *usually* overrides windows urge to un FS it. good luck!

Unfortunately this is an application-specific behaviour. Your best bet is to find a media player that doesn't do this. I personally use VLC, but find one that works best for you.

Sorry, it looks like VLC does have this problem too. But, there may be a way to configure it, I'm not sure. Your best bet would be to give it a try and see if it works for you.

As I said, Media Player Classic is your best bet, I am quite media savvy myself so I have done lots of research. See my other psot for the description. PM me if you need better instructions.

Thanks for the tips, pyrobob - Media Player Classic sounds like the right answer here.

That would be up to the web browser I think. Some media players might be able to play embedded flash videos, but I'm not sure.
