Multiple Channels On Multiple Screens With One Computer
When you have multiple screens connected to one computer and you want each screen to display a different channel it is easiest to run multiple instances of a browser: one on each screen. Here's how to do this in Windows.
- On your hard drive, create a directory for the browser to store it data: one for each screen, e.g. C:\screen1, C:\screen2 and C:\screen3.
- Find and copy the Chrome Icon on the desktop; create one copy for each screen.
- For each icon:
- Right click the icon
- Select Properties
- Change the Target field and paste in the following code, setting the desired channel URL, window-position offset and the unique user data directory for that screen:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app="http://online.monitorsanywhere.com/123/456" --window-position=1920,0 --kiosk --user-data-dir=C:\screen1
- It could be that your Chrome app is installed in a different directory than the one listed in the line above. Be sure to use your own directory then.
- If you use our startup script, you want to make the changes described above to the startup script instead of you the properties of the Chrome icons.
- This example is for Windows but should work similarly for Linux and MacOS.
