I wish to blackout or grayout my other monitor when using VLC in fullscreen.

I've searched around and there seems to be an option for it, but I can't find it.

As far as i'm aware, the option is only available in OSX. There is certainly no option in my version (latest) and i am running 3 monitors.

I recently found XBMC which has this feature. But that's a media center.
