- Chrome: 51.0.2704.106 m (64-bit)
- QUADRO M1000M NVIDIA supplied drivers, delivered via device manager force update (update did not affect the issue): 10.18.13.5474
- Intel HD Graphics 530: 10.18.15.4285
- Dual monitor, external connected via HDMI cable to DVI input.
When playing HTML5 videos on Chrome, fullscreen videos display fine in the built-in monitor, but if set to display on the external monitor it is just black (with sound).
This does not happen on MS Edge or Internet Explorer (both also current versions).
Workarounds (i.e., fullscreen video in external monitor works when I):
Disable the built in graphics in the BIOS
Disable "use hardware acceleration when available" in Chrome settings
I would like have built in graphics enabled (to conserve battery) AND I would like to use hardware acceleration in Chrome (to get better performance when needed).
Are there specific settings for Chrome in the NVIDIA Control Panel I need to play with? I tried setting Chrome to use the external GPU, but it doesn't solve the problem, so I left it at default (Chrome by default uses the internal GPU, according to NVIDIA's control panel).
Are specific settings in the Chrome flags I should play with?
What else could I try to enable fullscreen video in the external monitor while respecting 1 and 2 above?
PS: I don't play games, so I would actually rather disable the NVIDIA GPU entirely, but if I do that the external monitor doesn't work at all (I assume it is because the HDMI output is connected directly to the discrete graphics adapter)
