I'm on a Mac OS X multi display setup watching movies using VLC. Whenever I enter full screen mode, the other monitors fade to black. Is there any way to prevent this?


This is a setting in VLC's preferences on macOS. Under the "Video" preferences tab, simply uncheck "Black screens in Fullscreen mode". You can also select a specific screen for fullscreen output from the "Fullscreen Video Device" dropdown.
