If you have a Windows PC with an extended desktop, you can download and install the DC Media Player software. This will provide the ability to display content on the extended desktop that is connected via VGA, DVI or HDMI. The following diagram illustrates this concept:


When the DC Media Player installer is executed it will install the DC Media Player application and the DS Agent application. The DS Agent enables the Windows PC to connect to the CMS and receive playlists and files, whilst the Player application displays the latest playlist and content on the extended desktop.


By default the Player application will display content on the first desktop it finds, which in this case is the primary desktop. To change the desktop that the player uses, run Player Config and select the extended desktop from the list of desktops displayed under the Display tab.
