That wasn't what I was asking for but thank you for your reply. Does anyone know of any software that will actually dim the brightness of the monitor around my playing video?

Hi there

Not quite sure what the OP is asking for.
However if you just want to ADJUST the video while playing say a movie standard software like VLC has a Video effects section -- here you can adjust such things like Sharpness, Gamma, Brightness, Contrast, and even things like Hue and Saturation.

VLC as a player has almost anything you need. The problem usually is you have to find it !!!.
