Thanks Kurt.

Seems the value "0" sends the instance to the second monitor here. Mplayer's
-xineramascreen option has no effect on monitor placement and mplayer's
-geometry seems to act a little funny.

Seems DWM takes precedence over the mplayer's options concerning monitor
placement. So using the dwm.h file is best for specifying monitor? (And
likely full screen mode too as mplayer's -xinerama has null effect again,
likely due to DWM precedence?)
