    How I haven’t been able to find another thread about this, I have no idea.

    I would like to be able to watch Netflix or Hulu videos on my second display connected to my Mac. Preferably, I'd enjoy making them full screen. However, when clicking the "full screen" button on either of these sites, the video becomes full screen back on my Mac (because my Mac is the main monitor, probably). Dragging the window over to the other monitor and clicking the button doesn't work, by the way -- as that's a QuickTime trick, and these are Flash or Silverlight videos.

    Without having to mirror displays, or moving the menu bar over to the second display, is there anyway to watch videos full screen on my second monitor?

    I dont believe there is a way besides moving the white bar over to your other monitor in the settings. For some reason i think those full screen features will only open up on the main screen.
