Unfortunately if the game blanks out your second screen when it launches, DisplayFusion won't be able to help show content on that screen :(

Sorry!

Why?

Media players normally use OpenGL or Direct X as their render and therefore can conflict with the game.

But it is possible to run a full screen game and watch a video on the other monitor (most of the time).
I have VLC running maximized (not fullscreen) on my second monitor while playing ex. Borderlands 2 on my primary monitor in full screen. I don't Alt+Tab since that causes problems with the video, so I use a VLC remote on my Android tablet or iPhone for control or load a video.

Why do things so hard? Just run the game in full windowed mode, and play your movie on the other monitor. Works fine, I do this all the time.
