Works on Dual Screen TiBook
Authored by: sven on Nov 30, '01 01:59:25PM

Previous versions of the DVD player immediately quit and complained about an unsupported system when started in a dual screen configuration. You had to disconnect an external screen to get it to run.

This restriction has been removed. Event though you can't move the DVD window away from the main screen, you can have an external monitor attached. I'm running both screens in 16bit mode, haven't tried 32bit. Sweet!

Since the decoding takes less than 50% cpu you can even get some stuff done while keeping an eye on the movie (with a multi-tasking OS we have to start multi-tasking ourselves, don't we?)

No joy here. DVD player 3.0.1 (with 10.1.1) still gives the "unsupported" message in both extended desktop and video mirroring modes (I didn't expect it to work in the later case) when hooked to my TV. Must be a fix for the Rev B's. I guess I'm stuck with the unglamorous "clamshell" trick...

TiBook 400, 384 MB RAM

I'm happy to accept any suggestions...

Glenn
