farib is an unknown quantity at this point
Default what happened to multihead ?

I have a GeForce2Ti and a TNT1

with the previous version of BSplayer I was able at least to select the screen/card for display, but now there is no more this option and i cannot select the screen ( just moving with mouse doesn't work on the secondary screen )

well, i thought the select screen feature was removed because of something like that, but acctually it doesn't detect. At least, it workd with previous version, so it is only the "detection" fault. Is there a debug mode that would allow me to check wether the screen change is detected ?



otherwise should there be special video settings to allow multihead to function properly ( in the case my TNT has less HW features than my GF2) ???


edit: i made another try. when i drag the window on the TNT it disappears... It is quite difficult to make it go make put possible.

perhaps is it because it memorises the parameters of the window ( ie : on secondary screen) and as my secondary screen doesn't display, it never appears back

the only "way i have found" ( not simple, but i cannot isolate the problem) is to desactivate secondary screen, laucnh bsplayer, which reappears on primary diplay. Then i can reactivate secondary display. So That's ok for the window. but it still doesnt work.

editË› : if i use keyboard shortcuts to transfer windows on screens, i can make bsplayer window move and work back again. It just does not work / detect on secondary screen.

Would it be possible to reimplement screen selection in BSplayer ( but with auto select option too) so that i make other investigations ?


on what kind of multihead has bsplayer been successfully tested ?

(just know that GF4 or Radeon multihead is not true multihead,, done by the card and not the OS; under linux you don't use xinerama )

eeerf, did you read my messages ? :?

with 494 it works fine one the display i select

the ones with no screen selection do not detect screen change, i doubt, because it is just black on secondary screen.

so just autodetection *should* be improved :;
