* PowerPC G5 iBooks and iMacs (NOT Intel-based Macs) are shipped from Apple with hardware that is capable of supporting two independent displays, but it is not enabled. Apple only enables 'mirroring' mode which means that when you connect one of these systems to an external display, it shows exactly what's on the internal display (like a mirror). Both ProPresenter and ProVideoPlayer require 'spanning' which is a configuration that allows for the desktop to be extended (or spanned) across a secondary display providing additional desktop space, not just mirroring it. If you have one of these older systems that can only mirror, there is a freely available hack that will enable spanning and works on most systems. It's called Screen Spanning Doctor and while we cannot guarantee it will work for you, we have found it to be quite reliable. Be aware that if you do choose to install it, you do so at your own risk.
