Clone monitor

Postby ravensky6x9 » Sun Apr 13, 2008 12:07 am

I know it sounds odd but does anyone know of a way to clone your monitor so when you play a movie from pc you can watch it without it going into fullscreen mode. I had it set on my older computer but I cant seen to locate it from the nvidia settings now. Running this on xp system, 7600gt nvidia card agp. current drivers are 169.21 ?? if anyone knows a fix or can smack me in the right direction I would apprecaite it.

I always use dual-screen, or "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

Display properties > settings (tab) > select a display (box with a 1,2, or 3 in it) > Extend my windows.... (checkbox)

Then just drag the vid player to the other display and maximize

I tried that but all I get is a black screen on my player when it is maximized on the secondary screen. I can go into the nview settings and all I get is the option to watch my movies in fullscreen. It only just started doing that on my current video card the 7300 series nvidia on my 5500 it never had that issue. The option to show widescreen is no longer present.

"Widescreen" isn't an "option". It is a resolution. If your vid is in widescreen, make sure the player is set to zoom to the inside border, and Aspect Ratio is locked. (in MPC, thats all under the "View > Video Frame" menu)

Try using Media Player Classic, or Zoom.

I can't help with any other player, as I don't use them.
