I'm running x64 Ubuntu 10.04, desktop edition. I've got 2 big graphics cards that handle 2 HDMI ports each. I've got 6 cores on processor as well.
I want to be able to show a different movie on each monitor wired up to each HDMI port, preferably FAST! So maybe use a processor for each card or something.
- How do I tell a media player (VLC, XMBC) to play on a specific screen (how to I "point" it to the right one)?
- Where do I start on delegating tasks to cores? I've never done multicore/threaded optimization before.
I'm looking for suggestions of software, packages, or code to start off with. If you know of tutorials online somewhere, that's really really great. Thanks!
