Ubuntu – How to select on which monitor YouTube fullscreens


I have a dual monitor set-up. When I'm on YouTube, and I click the fullscreen icon, the fullscreen automatically goes to the second monitor. How do I get it to go fullscreen on my main monitor?

Best Answer

The only successful workaround that I have found so far is an extension for Chrome:

Multiple Monitor Full Screen

It maximises the Youtube video to the Chrome window which you can then Fullscreen on which ever monitor you like.

You should be aware of a small exiting from full-screen bug that affects Chrome on Ubuntu. Flash swallows the F11 key command so use Ctrl-Tab to switch to a non-flash tab and use F11 from there.
