    I have my iMac and an additional monitor hooked up for that nice dual screen experience. However, I am watching two football games (via mozilla) and I cannot make both full screen. When I make one full screen and go to click for the other game on the secondary screen the primary screen returns back to normal size. I can't even have one full screen video while working on the secondary monitor. Whenever I click off of the full screen monitor, it automatically returns back to its normal size.

    So my question is, can I override this in order to have two full screen videos (one on each monitor), or even one full screen while working on the other?

    Thanks in advance

    Chrome has a fullscreen mode under view as an option. I don't know if that will work for you but it is worth a try.

    Presumably the streams are on Flash based sites, and that's a limitation of that particular format. Annoying isn't it? Even worse is sometimes you get a great quality feed on Veetle which then fullscreens to my MBP screen, not the TV out. Arrgh!

    My buddy and I found a way to do it, but it only works with windows. You install display link and then overwrite some flash file. We did it on his hp (which has two external monitors hooked up to it), and it worked great. Too bad Mac doesn't have anything like that.
