    Hi all!

    I have a MB with an external monitor attached. I want to watch a QuickTime movie full screen on my external monitor while I work on my laptop screen.

    When I enter full screen in QT, it moves over to the main screen, even if the small window is on the external screen.

    Is there a way to make the video play full screen on the external monitor?

    Thanks! :D

    Sure is. QuickTime -> Preferences -> Full Screen. (I'm on Windows right now so don't shoot me if the Mac version has it somewhere else, but it's definitely there.)

    Wow. Duh. Thanks!

    Last time I looked there I was on 1 screen mode and didn't think to check when it was attached.

    No problem. I just wish you could set it to use the current display...
