I think I had the same problem. By default, openbox tries to
'fullscreen' windows that are on the main monitor across all monitors.
For me, that gave problems with programs such as mplayer, xine or xawtv.
I sent a patch to bugzilla #2001
(https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2001) that fixed the
problem for me.
The patch defines a new variable for rc.xml that lets you choose between
default behaviour, and make fullscreen windows occupy just one monitor.
For that you must set that variable to 'no' as in following example:

  .... (other variables) ...

I hope this solves your problem.
