S-Video displays desktop but doesnt dislay media player video
Hi, I am having a problem with my s-video hook up. I can see my desktop on my tv, but the video that's playing on my desktop does not play on my tv. I find it really odd that i can see everything but the video. I have tried using VLC media player, but it still does not work. Any ideas on what this may be? Thanks for your help.

you need to right click on your laptop wallpaper and click personalize it may say display or you can go to the control panel and search change display once your there you should see to screens with the numbers 1,2 just drag the 2 into the 1 spot and that should take care of it you computer screen will just show wallpaper and the tv will have the icons when your done drag the 1 back into its spot.
You set it to Multiple Monitors (if you move the mouse, you will probably be able to see it on the TV once it "goes out" of the laptop desktop). You need to change output mode to external S-Video.
First of all try hitting Fn + F7 key to switch to Ext-S-Video. If it works, that's it, of course. If it doesn't, TV output is not enabled.
Right-click on the desktop to bring up the Properties, go to Settings. You'll see two monitor images there, 1 and 2.
Click Advanced, then go to Displays. You'll get CRT, TV and LCD. Turn on the TV button and tune your settings.
At this point, the hotkey Fn + F7 is enabled to cycle between LCD and TV.
If it still doesn't work and you see the blank desktop, go again in Display Properties, choose LCD as Primary Display, select Secondary, and verify that "Extend desktop on this display" is NOT checked.
Hi , My suggestion is first of all lower the screen resolution to minimum. Some tvs and monitors do not support high resolutions. After you see picture on the tv screen you can adjust resolution to the highest supported by tv.
Press Fn+F8 key after connecting to the S-video display device. Hope this helps, if not, you may need to download latest driver for your video card, or latest software to manage displays
please right-click on my computer and click on the properties, there click on hardware to see hardware that are not properlly installed or driven. if all hardware are driven than get back for further directives. but it might that the s-video is not driven that is why it is not functioning or responding. good luck
Other options can be accessed for configuring the external display or
SVIDEO output by right-clicking the Windows desktop or background and
selecting Properties from the menu list. Settings,Advanced,Graphics media driver for mobile,Graphics Proprties,(make sure the s-video monitor is hooked up),select Display, see if s-video is an option.
you’ll need two outputs on your laptop that are typically found on most: the first is a small round yellow socket usually found on the back of your laptop, which is the S-video socket. The other socket you need is either a line out (unlikely) or headphones socket (more likely). You also need a TV with the correct inputs, which will ultimately decide which cables you need
First, you need two separate cables for video and audio: S-video to S-video...and Stereo 3.5mm plug to 2x RCA plugs..Both cables are two metres long and longer cables are also available..Your TV will require either equivalent S-video and RCA audio inputs or a SCART socket - if it only has the latter, you’ll also need a SCART adapter
Once done, plug them all in and switch your TV on, switching to the A/V channel. If nothing appears, open the Display Properties Control Panel, switch to the Settings tab and click Advanced. Look for a Display tab or something similar where you’re able to switch on the S-video port to enable the laptop’s display to route through the TV. Finally, when watching DVD movies (you’ll need a DVD player to do so), look for the option to run them full screen, so you get the best possible picture from your TV.
