triple monitor video spanning issue newbie needing help please :S

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all mm owners,

I recently (yesterday) grabbed two monitors to setup a surround environment in my room and im loving the gaming side of it but there is one thing im kinda struggling to figure out i tried my butt of and researched like crazy to no prevail.

Im a creature of habit so im kinda used to VLC player and so i was wondering exactly maybe even a step by step to getting video playback but having it span across all three screens, currently im running 5760x1080 but my flanking panels are 3" smaller than my central panel which i wanted as i didnt havnt the budget and also i kinda like the look of it smile.gif

please help me as im sure there is a post here somewhere about this and is most likely addressed but i cant seem to find it

am i missing something? should i be using some sort of 3rd party player?

if it helps my version of VLC is ""VLC media player 2.0.8 Twoflower""

thank you guys for taking the time to read smile.gif

any help would go a long way too

Screenie? I'm pretty sure if you dragged the box across all three screens, it will work...

this is what i get at maximized window of VLC, so basically is there a way of maybe getting the video to play either using all three fully or at least the left monitor using second half central monitor fully used and the right monitor using the first half?

i have the latest version of VLC media player.

iv been trying to span a movie across 2 monitors, so far all that i have read and tried has failed. what i have tried is using VLC and going to Preferences / show settings 'ALL' / Video / Filters / Image wall setting

NO. Columns to 3

NO. of rows to 0

Element aspect ratio to 16:9 then

going to filters-

Checking the 'Wall Video Filter' (I don't know which one to Check because there are 2 of the same check boxes. one at the top under "Video filter module" and one at the bottom under 'Video splitter module'.)

then i went to video and un-checked 'Overlay video output'.

what happens when i check both ''Wall Video Filter" boxes and restart VLC, VLC crashes. When i Check the one only at the top under "Video filter module" VLC works but the Movie does not span over both monitors. When i check the one at the bottom under 'Video splitter module' VLC crashes...

I've been having this same issue as well. Started messing around with this last night actually as I finally got my second monitor of the same size (Asus VS247h). Now the majority of the steps you have done are correct, there is just one thing missing, which i picked up from here.

http://superuser.com/questions/461269/how-to-watch-a-video-in-full-screen-on-multiple-monitors

The step is: before you start your video, go to tools>effects & filters>video effects>geometry> Check the wall option> close then start your video.

That being said, I was able to get the split screen, now I am trying to figure out how to get them maximized correctly, to create the panoramic effect. Hope this helps a bit!
