How can we improve RealPlayer?

Full screen on second monitor of dual screens

Team,
I wish to select full screen display on my second monitor without the need to manually resize. Full screen seems to only work on the primary display.

        Yes the same problem here, who uses only one monitor these days. I sometimes require the full screen on my primary monitor and sometimes on my secondary monitor depending on what I am doing. I don't have this limitation on other media players so why is RealPlayer forcing me to use only my primary monitor?

        Just stumbled onto this thread ... this has been bugging me too. If I find anything I will return here and post my results. In the mean time ... did you know that real player limits the full screen option to your "main display" in windows. So if you set the desired display as your main in screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop you can side step this. I want my current display as main for a few reasons so this does not solve the issue for me but will perhaps help out a few of you all out there. Oh and you can always move your task bar back to your original main screen even when it is no longer the main screen. v0v

        Hi All,
        I have four monitors and use an application Ultramon, multiple monitor application. With this once Real Player is full screen you can then select which monitor to move it too. But note the transporter, share, trim, convert and windows size buttons at the top of the window stay put on your main monitor.

        Best I've got guys, don't cost much and I am sure will help in more ways if you have multiple monitors.

        This is a ridiculous limitation. It's not 1999 anymore, dual even triple screens are standard for many users today.
