I can't reproduce the bug.
Maybe it's a xnest bug.
Can you also reproduce the bug with xephyr?
Comment 3 aziem 2007-02-19 19:26:20 UTC
How do you launch Xephyr with multiple screens?  I see how to do it in Xnest,
but not Xephyr.

I tested this bug with real dual head hardware.  Whether I started OOo on
monitor 1 or 2, the video would play only on that monitor.  If I played
presentation on non-primary monitor, the video was replaced by a brown-ish box.
 (However, in all cases, the audio played.)

In other words:
 Start presentation on monitor 1, play on monitor 1: OK
 Start presentation on monitor 1, play on monitor 2: no video
 Start presentation on monitor 2, play on monitor 1: no video
 Start presentation on monitor 2, play on monitor 2: OK

Test system:
Fedora Core 6, 2.1 (official version), ATI Rage Mobility M3, 7.1 configured for 2 individual desktops.

You tested it with original dual display hardware therefore forget my question
about xephyr.
Comment 5 christian.guenther 2007-05-02 15:42:33 UTC
I talked with the developer and he said, that he did a fix in exactly that area.
The fix is intgrated in OOo 2.2
Please have a look if the bug still occurs in OOo 2.2.

Using OOo 2.2 now on the otherwise same Dell Latitude notebook, I still get no
video on second/presentation monitor.
