I have a problem with finding a solution so i can stretch screen over 2 monitors!

I would like to be able to stream movies on different streaming sites and stretch the movie over 2 monitors.

Basicly make 2 monitors appear as one single stretched screen.

Any solution on how this can be done?

Thanks Ahead

I already have done that but when i play a movie on like netflix and press fullscreen it dosent appear over both screen. I would like that to happen.

I found one hdmi switch called Matrox DualHead2Go wich could do that but that is way to expensive.

Is there any other way?

Do you have any solution for that?

Thanks Ahead

I'm not aware of any Intel solutions for that, however both Nvidia and AMD offer a way to gang a bunch of monitors together as a single display device.

Nvidia: http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/guides/how-to-correctly-configure-geforce-gtx-680-surround#1
AMD: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/gpu50-amd-eyefinity-display-groups.aspx

on the other hand, if your willing to run your videos in windowed mode, you can just stretch the application across both displays, however this isn't particularly ideal. (especially when its just two displays)
 

Then don't go full screen, just maximize the window hosting the NetFlix. Yes, you will see toolbars and stuff.
