I'm trying to split the screen in raspberry-pi. and access each screen for each display

I want the multiple layer in a single screen. Eg. my output screen resolution is 1024x720 in that i have to split vertically into two. in that i can play one video in one side and another video in another side.

  • Are you using a Pi 4 (i.e. with two HDMI ports)?

  • Which screens will you be using? The Pi3 only has one HDMI. I would recommend using a Pi 4 (they are back in stock) because it has two HDMI ports and can be used to display different images.
