I'm using Flash version (latest) and have a dual monitor setup on Windows 7 64bit.

Everything worked fine but lately, without upgrading anything, just all of a sudden, the full screen option in flash doesn't want to work as it used to. When I full screen a video on my right monitor it will go full mode on the left monitor, which is very annoying because the left monitor is bigger than the right one. Before it would open the video correctly in what monitor the browser is opened.

I tried things like IgnoFlash , I also tried FlashPatch (by Amiya Patanaik). Neither of them solved the problem.

Below is a screenshot of how the problem looks like. Note that when I have my browser open on my left monitor, it does open full screen mode correctly on the left monitor.

  1. Type about:plugins into the address bar and press enter.
  2. Click details at the top right. (You should now have two flash plugins with a disable button)
  3. Disable the pepflashplayer.dll
  4. Restart chrome or refresh the page.

You can probably turn this back on once the next update rolls out and they fix it.

This has been answered here: http://www.honestcanadian.com/full-screening-video-onto-wrong-monitor/ but essentially just be sure to open the browser window on the monitor you are going to be watching on.
