Trap for new players projecting Video from a Laptop - while the Video was visible in Kino on the Laptop, the Video didn't appear on the screen via the projector, plugged into the external monitor port of the Laptop.

Fortunately there were knowledgable people in the room, who diagnosed the problem and solved the problem - change the Display in Kino (via EDIT/PREFERENCES) to XVideo to GDK). A similar problem occurred with MPLAYER.
