Spanning Video Across Multiple Monitors


I can't seem to get my video to span across my monitors. Only half of the video is showing on one monitor. This is what I see when I try to play a video spanning across two screens!

Windowed Mode

Full Screen Mode



I will be using Media Player Classic as an example. Other media players might or might not produce the same effect.

Go back to windowed mode and open another instance of Media Player Classic. Open the same video file and play it. Voilà! It plays across both monitors now!

It's that simple Running the second instance of Media Player Classic allows the video to span across both monitors!

Now, maximize the second instance of Media Player Classic and enjoy your video on your multi-monitor setup.

Another solution is to use MatrixDVD media player. It supports multi-monitor video playback and you won’t need to resort to the rather inelegant workaround I described above.

The reason why I don’t use MatrixDVD instead is because it doesn’t offer some of the functionalities that I want. I also can’t seem to get the subtitles of my videos to show up on this player.

But feel free to give it a try. MatrixDvD player is shareware. Find out more!
