Need a dual-monitor media player (video) for an XP computer

I'm responsible for playing videos (either stored on the hard drive or DVD) in a dual-monitor environment. one monitor is the default computer monitor and the 2nd monitor is video projector. Similar to MS PowerPoint. I'm having a hard time find a media player that i don't ahve to drag the video window into the 2nd monitor to show the video. I need a media player that will do this. i've tried Windows Media player as well as a few others. There's got be one out there someplace.

Have you tried winamp? There seems to be a little information about dual-monitor support there. Worth a go.
See: http://pptfaq.com/FAQ00476.htm
You'll need something like UltraMon to control which monitor an application starts on:

So it doesn't matter which video software you're using, you need a 3rd party add-in to expand the functionality of multiple monitors otherwise all applications will start on whatever monitor you've selected as the primary monitor.
MatrixDVD Player is a multi monitor dvd player :D
Has anyone had any luck with this, I have the same problem,

What I would really like is a Media play with the controls on the primary monitor and the video full screen on the secondary monitor with a single key shortcut to blank the video. Windows Media Player 9 used to work like this with XP, but WMP 11 and Vista don't.
