Using full screen video with Dual Monitors

First post here.
Im preparing for a show where we need to run full screen video using a projector from my Macbook Pro. I was wondering if there was anyway to run the video full screen while using my macbook screen to alter the playlist and use it for other jobs. Ive been testing using my LCD tv at home with the duel monitor setup and when I set the video to full screen on the TV, it causes my macbook screen to go blank. Is there anyway around this or any programs that may work better than VLC?
Thanks in advance.

Only thing i have found is to use the OS DVD player and drag it out the the full screen. If you go into full screen on your other monitor and then proceed to do work o your mac it, comes out of full screen and goes into the small screen version, hence dragging it to full screen eliminates this problem i have found.
Someone might no f a 3rd party app that alleviates this problem though.
That has been my work around.
Aesthetically it doesnt look nice but works
