"It actually is possible to do! You do have to either hex edit a flash binary or you can use the one he supplied if you trust it.

""Watch fullscreen flash while working on another screen"""

No, you can't do that with flash, but for the TWiT Live stream, you can use VLC to play the following stream: http://bglive-a.bitgravity.com/twit/live/high and that will allow you to play it on a second monitor in full screen.

"If you have two or more monitors, then
you have probably experienced this:
When watching a fullscreen flash video
on one screen you go to work on the
other screen and flash immediately
exits fullscreen mode.

FlashHacker is a tool which makes
hacking and unhacking a flash install
incredibly easy. It should work on
most versions of flash.

Close all browsers (enables flashhacker to edit flash)
Run FlashHacker
Click 'Hack My Flash!'
Go back to browsing"

"There's an automated program. See the discussion here. Or you can ""pop out"" a window (like on Hulu)

"There's another way, if you use Google Chrome.

Type about:plugins in the URL bar, and expand the +Details link where it says Flash (3 Files).

Disable the one that says Pepperflash at location C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\21.0.1180.60\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll

When you restart Chrome, you'll find that flash video works as expected, and it will stay in fullscreen mode even if you click on other windows on your other monitor. Works for me with Flash 11.3 r300."
