Dracan is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Does BSPlayer support darkening second monitor?

Hi, I have a question regarding darkening second monitor while playing fullscreen on first (or vice versa).

I watch movies on DLP projector, which is my secondary display, and I must turn off my CRT monitor (primary display) manualy to darken a room completely.

Is there any option in BSPlayer which turn off the other display or at least darken it while playing movie fullscreen on first?

Thanks.

Obviously BSPlayer has no such option. Is there another way to accomplish this (besides setting desktop color to black), maybe in another player?

If no, I have a suggestion for a new feature: when playing in fullscreen mode, it should darken (or maybe even turn off) all other displays. I believe it would help some other users with projectors, too.

I sort of like your idea, could be nice to have a function like "turn of primary display when in fullscreen" is selected.

Some display driver might have this function though, such as catalyst or forceware but I don't really know, I use my laptop to play movies and just close the lid to switch over to the Tv then control BSPlayer through bluetooth dong.

Suggest just turning the monitor off when you want to watch the second display? Or maybe it actually turns out there's some use to the "screen saver" option in 2007 windows afterall, I mean ones you have an LCD screensavers are outdated and useless. If it's possible to activate the screensaver for just one screen? Anyway, valid suggestion imo.

Windows don't support such behaviour, but we will check for possible solutions.
