    Hi so I have set up a second monitor to my iMac using a dvi to vga cable. Now I would like to watch videos in itunes full screen on the second monitor but whenever I select them to play in full screen it makes my iMac screen go completely black. Anything I can do about this?
    Also is there a way to make things open in the 2nd monitor by default rather than having to drag them over?

    Cheers

    I'm pretty sure this can only be done using Quicktime or DVD player.

    I never figured out how to do this with quicktime but i know with vlc player you can go into the preferences and set it so the other monitor isn't black.

    you'll also be able to drag the window to either monitor and it will maximize to that that monitor.
