Getting Xine to use other monitor in fullscreen


Hi there,

I have a problem when using xine. My system uses 2 video cards - an nvidia GeForce 4 MX on the AGP (my main card) and an S3 Trio 64 on the PCI for my second monitor. Sadly whilst the second monitor does well for word processing and surfing the net, it's not very powerful when it comes to video. Which is my problem.
When I select fullscreen with xine the video jumps over to my secondary monitor which is not where I want it. Don't know if the fact that to use dual screens in Windoze I have to set my bios to start the PCI card as my primary (due to some problem with the particular motherboard model).
Anyway all I'm looking for is a way to tell xine that Screen 0 (my nvidia one) is the screen that I want xine to use for fullscreen. I've looked in the config and on google but have had no luck.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Maybe you could try starting it with a display value, as in
xine -display localhost:0.0 video.mpg

I tried it after posting, and it didn't work. Sorry.

Tried it to, also no luck :-) Got me trying a few other options but sadly nothing that seems to do what I want it to. Alas I'll keep looking. Thanks for the suggestion.
