    I was just wondering if there is anyway to use two Monitors for an extended desktop, but play a DVD in full screen mode on one monitor without effecting the other one. I keep having the problem of putting the video into full screen and then when I go to the other screen to use it full screen mode will exit on the other screen?? Anyone know who to get around it??

    Hey thanks for the response...I've figured out a way for it to work. Rather then using the Apple DVD playing program I've set VLC to play my DVD's which when in full screen on my main monitor doesn't exit when I use m other monitor. Now I just have to figure out how to get VLC to open in full screen on the opposite monitor so I still have access to my Dock when movies are playing lol! Technology so frustrating!

    Remain in full screen when...

    Move the video window to your second screen, then Command + F

    This isn't working for me on a completely up to date 2010 MBP 13... Anyone confirm?

    Looks like back to VLC...
