HOWTO: Play a movie on a projector without dragging over a window
Hi, I hope this is useful to someone!
Two of my friends and I do sound, lighting and video projection for functions such as prize givings, concerts, etc. This time, we did a fashion show at a school. For this we had to play videos (things like interviews and movie clips) on a projector. For casual functions, it's OK to use a laptop with windows, connect it to the projector, "extend your desktop" to the projector, double click the movie, drag it over, and maximize it. This was however a formal occasion and many different videos and sound clips had to be played in quick succession. Also, due to decor and lighting, the projector was not visible from the control area at all times.
The projector goes from black to video and back to black without problems. This looks really professional, and your don't even need the mouse.
Thanks for sharing that. I'm sure it'll come in handy.
