[MPlayer-users] adapter option with gl2 output on windows

I'm using version  r28311 of mplayer under windows xp.  I'm using the 
gl2 output to allow mplayer windows to be spread across multiple monitor 
displays.  I have one 1600x1200 and three 1024x768 monitors. 

However I don't seem to be able to use the -geometry option to place the 
windows past the first monitor.  This is probably because each monitor 
is set up independently and perhaps geometry only works within a single 
adapter.  Using the directx driver, I can use the -adapter option along 
with -geometry to put the mplayer window wherever I want, but -adapter 
doesn't appear to work with the gl2 driver, and the directx driver will 
only display on one adapter at a time.

Any thoughts on how to achieve both unlimited positioning and display 
across multiple adapters?
