View second monitor preview on primary
Posted on 2008-06-09
I've got my PC in one room and my TV in another room. I've got composite leads running to the TV and an amplifier so that I can watch vids straight off the PC on my TV.
This is what I do to watch a movie...
I have to start the movie on the primary monitor and then pause it. I then drag the media player onto the second monitor and take my wireless mouse into the other room. I can then double-click the movie on the secondary monitor (TV) so that it goes full screen, and then click play to watch it.
This works, but the mouse is a bit crap in the other room, which is fair enough. I just wondered if there is a piece of software that gives a 'picture-in-picture' approach to dual monitors, so that I could see what I was doing on the secondary monitor, whilst sitting in front of the primary?
Please, don't suggest hardware changes or anything unrelated to what I'm asking. If what I have asked for is not available, then I'll simply develop it myself. I just don't want to bother building a piece of software that already exists.
Thanks a lot!
