I can't run any fullscreen video on my second monitor. I tried with youtube on google chrome, netflix on firefox and vlc.

Any ideas on why?

1 Answer 1


The same happen to me since Juno, with Loki I could without issue. Now is not possible to upscale any video content

The only way to bypass it is to maximize it/go fullscreen on the main display and then send it to the desired one (WINKEY+SHIFT+RIGHT_ARROW)

I couldn't figure out where to watch in the logs to check what happen


I use chrome to watch netflix and youtube in kiosk mode

just save the app shortcut then edit it and add --kiosk and --window-position=X,0

where X stand for the x coordinate where the second display starts


check your displays with:

$ xrandr --query

that will make chrome go fullscreen and load on the second display for youtube -> youtube.com/tv (works awesome)

  • Thanks for your answer, I will try to fullscreen on the primary monitor and send it to the second one :D Commented Nov 18, 2018 at 0:40
