    You mean having the MP UI on you monitor, but the movies playback in fullscreen on the "2nd monitor" (i.e. your projector) ?

    Im pretty sure some of the gfx drivers have such a function (kind of) if nothing else.

    I don't think there's anything built into MP for this but I know that on my ATI Catalyst Control Center I can clone the video if it's fullscreen to the 2:nd monitor. Maybe something like that would work for you?
