This question has been running around in my head for months now.
Is it possible to use xv overlay to play a movie fullscreen on my TV, but
windowed on my computer? (or even minimized on my computer)
It would make a great addition to my laptop. That way I can still chat or
browse the web while the video just keeps playing fullscreen on the TV.
I have asked this question a lot of times, but no one I asked was able to
Technically, it should be possible. Because years ago I was able to do this
with the same laptop, but in Windows XP. I had to enable something called
"Cinema mode" for it to work in the overlay settings window.
I hope someone can help me.
And just in case the video driver matters: I am using the i810 (intel)
driver on this laptop
