On Windows overlay-rendered video playback was working correct on all the monitors. On Linux I not only have to place my external monitor below (instead of right to) my laptop's panel to enable its full resolution , but video player displays blue square instead of the video picture if placed on the second display. Can I overcome it other way than by using software video rendering?
I use Intel 82852/855GM graphics and Ubuntu 10.10. I mainly use raw mplayer to play video.
UPDATE: I've noticed, that the problem only takes place when I use a big (1600x1200) monitor (placed under the laptop's panel, otherwise it's impossible to use that big resolution with Intel driver (or just my oldie Intel card)). When I use a 1024x768 external panel (placed to the right of the laptop's panel), overlay video rendering seems to work ok on both screens.
