    i'm pretty sure you just drag it over to the other screen and then hit Apple + F. well, i think so.

    am i right?

    It is possible, I did it with my 12" PB and an external display where I had a DVD going on the second screen and I was using the 12" screen to do work. You might have to adjust the screen positioning in the system prefs, but I'm not sure. I full screen video might only play on what is considered the main display. I say just try it out and play around with some settings.

    open quicktime -> preferences -> fullscreen and click on the screen wich you want to make QT default... the QT logo will move to that one...

    that's it ;)

    PS: only when using the fullscreen our one of the other view options..; it will move to that screen, the movie otherwise opens on the 'main' screen... with your screenspanning you can offcourse set you 17" as 'main'...

    You can also do it by Selecting View->Present Movie, and it will let you select which display you want the video to play on. Another cool thing in QT7 is the fact that you can drag the little floating controller to whichever display and control the video from there.
