I am looking at droid media players (C410) in the RV store.  Looking at the specs it says 'Simultaneous Videos' with a number.  What does 'Simultaneous Videos' mean?  Does it mean how many monitors I can hook up to this media player or maybe how many windows within one screen I can have? 

Also, any media player recommendations to run 2 LED screens on 1 media player?

If you want to play the same content on both, then use HDMI splitter. If you need dual-screen setup then you gonna need something with 2 video outputs. NUCs have 1xHDMI and 1xDVI outputs. That might work with DVI to HDMI cable.

Hello Paul,

2 simultaneous videos means the media player is capable of playing 2 videos at the same time in a presentation. Video playback can be taxing on the hardware, and playback of more than 2 videos could cause playback to be laggy and stutter, which is why we list this information. 

Darius is correct regarding the HDMI splitter and dual-screen setup.
