It's a perfectly feasible way to go. I don't know if it's still an issue, but you may find that if you are playing videos, they might only play well on one monitor - this is due to graphics accelleration only working on the 'Primary' monitor, which you should be able to set in Display preferences
I don't think the video thing will be a problem. I was thinking this over in my head last night trying to think up any possible problems. One thing I thought of is possible problems running the projector "full screen" and having it use both monitors...I could see it working in a window and dragging half and half between the 2 monitors, but I was thinking there might be problems getting it to display full screen using dual screen. This might not be a problem as long as the projector is sized for 2 monitors...hard to predict. I'm supposed to be getting an adapter I need on Monday which will hopefully work and allow me to test this out.
I have used director to create dual screen kiosk apps no problem, one touchscreen and the other a plasma or the like.
I would however recommend you run the a main app from the touchscreen and open a second miaw positioned correctly in relation to the touchscreen, ie. possibly with negative coordinates (depends which is screen 1 on the video card), it's just easier this way and would probably work better performance wise.
Just want to thank everyone! We bought a Samsung 40" LCD tv with a computer built in. We bought an external video card to run the touchscreen display as the second monitor. We are still doing some trial and error testing to get flash buttons placed into director to behave correctly when pressed using the touchscreen, but other than that, things seem to be working great! Thanks again!
Cool, where did you get the LCD with the computer built in?
Also, it would be great if you could mention which mouse events work and
which don't in flash. I did a kiosk with a touch screen and some flash
buttons but must have got lucky because they work. But I've hear that either
onPress or onMouseUp doesn't work right in flash with touchscreens.

You can use one stage, spread accross two screens, but for best performance, you need to set your displays as if it was one big screen. There are several ways you can setup your monitors, but when windows sees it as two different screens, and the stage is bigger, there will be a serious performance penalty.
I guess your graphics card needs to support this. If it doesn't, go with a Movie in a Window.
