View Full Version : [ubuntu] No video with extended desktop on?

September 9th, 2010, 06:20 AM

I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on a problem I encountered tonight.

I was about to watch a video in Movie Player, but wanted to watch it on my TV. This was my first attempt in seeing if Ubuntu could manage the extended desktop on to my TV like Windows does. It did so easily. I then hit play on the video, and could only hear sound. The video was all black. At first I thought it was just the video, but after restarting and turning off extended desktop, the video was fine.

What would cause something like this?

Thanks !
