    This is because of some gay copywrite DRM thing incase you record the video on a VCR. One way around this is to make your TV your main display while playing the file (AKA display 1 and your monitor display 2).

    An even easier way would be to try VLC player. I think that it automatically disables overlays, if not the try to find it in the player's options.

    Your going to need a video that runs at a crazy format and resolution to play over both properly. Lets say you got two 22" screens both running 1368x768 you then need to cover almost 2800 wide while not changing your vertical resolution. Which will cause the video to strech and not scale correctly.
