SOLVED: Video Player locked, cannot move

Post by FM_HeatSink » Sun Feb 16, 2020 7:50 pm

Windows 10, Live Suite 10.1.7

The video player has locked itself to the top left corner of my primary screen and will not allow me to move it either on the primary screen or to the secondary screen, which I need to do so I can project the video player for my live performance. How do I solve this? Picture below

Thanks in advance!

Might sound like a stupid question but did close and restart Live.
If this doesn’t solve the issue maybe try another video format and/or another video and let us know.

I have done both and even tried loading the video as a clip vs the arranger view. It's the player wrapper itself.

SOLVED!

Fix: drag the lower right corner of the video player up to the top left until the window detatches from the corner of the screen.

Would be nice if you could report this to support@ableton.com so we can't see if this is indeed a bug and fill it.
thx

Thanks for this! This has been bugging me. I closed and reopened my project within 60 seconds and for some reason the window had become fixed for no apparent reason. Was driving me nuts!
