    Provide an example program that demonstrates the problem. What you're seeing and trying to fix is not clear. Is it a Java problem or a an OS or hardware problem? Do you have a container on each monitor, both containing a video? Show that code.

    			PipedInputStream  readFrom = new PipedInputStream(1024*1024);
    			PipedOutputStream writeTo = new PipedOutputStream(readFrom);
    			mplayerOutErr = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(readFrom));
     
    			// create the threads to redirect the standard output and error of MPlayer

    Try searching the web for 'x11 java multi display'. I saw a couple results that looked promising, but I leave the discovery to you.
