Depending on your video card, and if you're using twinview, playback on
one screen will be better than the other.  Nvidia only supports overlay
on one of the heads (Which one can be configured in your X conf file).
The new 6xxx and 7xxx series cards don't do video overlay so I'm
wondering if one screen is better than another on those newer cards...
