dual monitor audio

Dual screen setup where one of the screens is a TV and the other is a monitor.

When I want to play a video off of hard drive I open media player and drag the window to the TV - for ex.
When I do this the sound moves from the PC speakers over to the TV.
This is what I want to happen.

My question is this:
After doing the above, I sometimes want to open another app and have it's audio stay on the PC.
But I'm unable to do so - it's sound will also go to the TV.
Is there a way to do this?

Actually a good way to look at it is put the sound on whichever screen the application is on.
If you drag it over to the TV then I want the sound on the TV.
If you drag it back to the PC (or was always on the PC) I want the sound to be on the PC.
BUT to do BOTH at the same time.

If you need more info just ask ...
