Default running dual displays question

new roommate moved in with a 50 widescreen.. so that booted my flatscreen 32" into my room... i have no problems with that

anyways, i am running dual displays right now, my 19" monitor is running 1280x1024, and my tv running through the *-video output

i can get the desktop and anything i do to show up on the tv, EXCEPT videos...

no matter what i run it through, winamp or windows media player... jsut shows up as black blank space on the tv version

something i need to tweak.. or is it just not gonna happen?

Simple repair. just change input audio input jack to output.
then move Aux into the out port. after that take the video output terminal and switch it with the audio jack.

Just have your primary monitor disabled when you want to watch something on the TV.
