DJBlackout makes it easier to watch movies on a computer when the movie does not fill the whole screen. When you watch a movie the icons and desktop background can be so bright they distract you from the movie. DJBlakcout does just that - it blacks out the rest of the screen around the movie application.

DJBlackout is useful when you have more than one monitor on your computer.
