Display Blocking with Video content only

I have two displays running Ubuntu with the chrome packaged app. When I run pictures only on my presentations everything works fine, but one I begin adding video I began getting the display blocking notification on both displays. How do I fix this? Is it a problem that comes only with the chrome app player?

DSquared,

Display blocking is live for all versions of the player.

What format are your videos? What item/gadget/widget are you using to display them in your presentation?

webmhd.webm and just the standard video widget on the placeholder menu.

Try using the new HTML5 Video Widget to display your video content instead. Let me know how it works out!

Blake, the new widget is working well, with no blocking issues. Thanks for the tip!
