Separate video on dual monitors
Posted on 2004-08-15
I am using a WinFast A360 Ultra video card based on the nVidia GeForce FX 5700 Ultra chipset. It has both VGA and DVI outputs. I have connected a monitor to each one. I have set them up to use "Dualview" which is supposed to be two separate, autonomous desktops. It works, and I have one monitor running at 1600x1200 and the other at 1024x768.
What I wish to do with this setup is watch video on one monitor (the 1024x768) while I play games on the other. I tried to do this by first starting a video on the smaller screen and then starting a game on the other (my primary). What actually happened though is that the video stopped playing as the game started. It doesn't matter whether the video on the small screen is in a window or fullscreen, it still stops.
Is there any solution to this?
