Auto-export of embedded Flash video to second monitor?
May 8, 2006 11:16 AM   Subscribe

Can embedded Flash videos (ala YouTube and Google Video) automatically export as full screen to a second monitor like Windows Media Player and Quicktime does?

Whenever I watch embedded videos online through Quicktime or Windows Media Player, the video plays in the embedded player and it also gets automatically exported to my TV which is setup as monitor 2 through my video card. Is it possible (via an extension, perhaps?) to get Flash videos to do the same thing?

(I know that both YouTube and Google Video have full-screen options, but this isn't what I'm looking for.)

The details:

Firefox 1.5.0.3
NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200

Thanks!

This is possible because QT and WMP use a video overlay to play video; Flash video doesn't. I don't know of a way to make Flash 8 use one.

VLC plays FLVs, but I'm not sure if VLC uses a video overlay.
