Try
Code:
 VDPAU_NVIDIA_SYNC_DISPLAY_DEVICE=CRT-1 mplayer media_file
changing CRT-1 to whatever is the connector where you want to sync.

I have also noticed that I am getting tearing when I playback video on my main monitor. I have set the XVideo Settings to "Sync to Vblank" and selected my main monitor to sync and also selected "Xv output" in Mplayer and still get tearing.
You must set the connector where you want XV to sync on nvidia-settings and the make sure your mplayer is using the XV output like
Code:
 mplayer -vo xv media_file
