Using Macbook using OS-X 10.5.8, how do I get a Quicktime video window to play on an external monitor, simultaneously using the laptop for something else?
I have a Macbook circa 2008 which has OS-x 10.5.8. I recently installed an HDTV in order to watch videos from the Macbook on a larger screen, while continuing to use the laptop for other things. I am unable to play a video on the larger screen unless in the mirror arrangement of the screens. With a side-by-side arrangement, I can drag the folder which contains the movie, but when I click on open, it opens and plays on the Macbook instead of on the tv. Other folders also open in the laptop window, not the tv.
This suggestion of dragging the window doesn't work.
