I'm trying to make one widescreen video file span 2 monitors, but no matter what i select in videosaver, i get a cloned image of the movie that's fullscreen on each monitor. any suggestions?

Make sure you have set the Style setting for each video to Desktop.

To change the setting, double-click the style setting, by default Monitor, of the video's playlist entry.

any plans to make a fully featured multiple monitor spanning media player?

I've thought about it, but currently I have no plans for a multi-monitor video player.

If you want to launch VideoSaver directly: run VideoSaver.scr with the /s command-line argument.

You could create a shortcut to VideoSaver.scr (located in the Windows directory, usually C:\Windows), then add the command-line argument at the end of the Target field of the shortcut, should look something like this:

C:\WINDOWS\VideoSaver.scr /s

I set the Style setting to Desktop.
I still see cloned movies on each of 2 monitors.
why is that?
stoickov   2005-09-02 22:27
I know I know,
first I added movies to the playlist
then I changed the Style setting,
but the default setting was still for the firsttly added movies.

it's almost ok now.
almost, because the quality of the secondary monitor is not to good (a kind of pixelize),
but I suppose it's the hardware thing,
am I right?

Most likely the video on the secondary monitor uses software rendering instead of a video overlay, which results in lower quality scaling of the video.

Most dualhead video cards only support video overlays on a single monitor.

really great stuff!
I'm dreaming of an option to start the movie the place it stoped last time [- ??? sec]. default 0.

This is already supported, to enable this option, go to VideoSaver Options, then check 'Continue Where Stopped'.
