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.

If you have the right drivers set up for your video card, you should be able to to set up screen mirroring from your display settings. Right-click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution and make sure both screens are showing up. If they are, then under Multiple displays, select Duplicate these displays. That should get it working for you.

I don't know how to get videos on my polariod mp3. i need help.


1. Connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The cable hooks into the bottom of the player.
2. Open Windows Media Player on your computer. If your MP3 player is connected properly, the media player will display The Name Of Your Player in its menu. This is where you place your video files.
3. Locate the video file you want to put on your MP3 player and select it by clicking on it with your computer's mouse.
4. Once the video is selected, "drag" the video across the media player to your mp3 players name display on the player.
5. When your player's name display lights up, release the mouse to "drop" the video into your MP3 player's video file.
6. Repeat the process to place additional videos.

that reciever is not going to carry a hi definition video signal, it doesnt have either hdmi or component video inputs.

you can still use it, but if you run the picture through the reciever, it will have poor quality.

heres how you are supposed to hook it up:

find the single,m yellow video jack on your sattelite box, and hook that up to the "tv" video input, then hook the laft and right audio outputs from the cable box into the "tv" audio left and right inputs on the receiver. hook up the dvd player and vcr in the same manner, using "dvd" and "VCR" (if labeled as such) inputs on the reciever.

finally, send the tv video and audio outputs to the composite video in and left/right audio inputs on the tv. the video will be running through the reciever, and when you use the reciever to switch the sound source, the video will also be changed. you could get better picture quality if you ran the video directly to the tv using component (seperate green, red and blue) outputs/inputs, and bypassing the reciever on the video end, but then you would have to change inputs on the tv AND reciever to change from your cable box to your dvd player.

First thing to do is to hook up a DVD player or a External Antenna and see if you can get a picture with sound. This will isolate the tv from the computer. If you get a picture then the fault is with the computer. If you cannot get any picture or even the OSD (On Screen Display Menu) then you either have a bad Main bd or a bad T-Con bd.

Hello,

Normally you have to open Control Panel, then open Display. From the Display properties dialog window, choose Settings and then Advanced. Your video card should have features available for all potential external displays. This includes TVs. That may be listed as a choice or you have to find the button to 'automatically find/detect TVs'. Once you get to the TV property sheet, you want to choose 'Clone' or words to this effect. Once your TV is found (your S-video or HD cable needs to be connected and active) then you can see your desktop on the TV. You can set parameters for the TV display. These are normally 60Hz unless you have a HD TV and then you can set a higher refresh rate and video display size 800x600 and 640x480 are common for an analogue TV. Use higher displays for your HD Flat Screen to accommodate a 16:9 width. Once you have activated Clone mode set your TV to the input line your HD cable or S-video cable input and you should see your desktop on the TV..

Some things to be careful about is how the display on the TV screen performs. Does it stretch your video out of proportion or not, and if it does you need to hunt for a property value you can set to modify what you see now to what you want to see.

Many video players on your PC or Laptop can clone your display adequately. But, there are some players that are preferred. Once in VLC media player and the other is Windows Media Player classic found after installing the K-Soft Full Codec package. Both of these are free and can be found in the Multimedia section of http://www.majorgeeks.com/. You will also want to ensure you have the latest Codecs available. Once again, the preferred program is K-Soft Full.

Let me know how you make out.

Movie Files will not display on the TV.


Its quite possible your laptop has lost its association with your TV as a "secondy monitor".

To check this, minimise everything and right click on the desktop and go to Properties. Then navigate to the settings tab. This will show you how many displays it considers itself to have.

Click on number 2 (if visable) and click on extend my windows desktop to this monitor.

You should now be able to go between screens
