Set Totem player to open in external monitor and not in built-in monitor

Hi guys

I have an external monitor connected to my laptop (extended display). I always drag the Totem player from the laptop screen to external monitor to watch video files. I wonder, if the Totem player can be set to open in the external monitor automatically, everytime I open it?

Host Machine
OS: Fedora 20, Desktop: Gnome, Kernel: 3.11.fc20.x86_64, Processor: Intel i3-2100 @ 3.10GHz, RAM: 8GB
Motherboard: ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3, Display: Mecer LCD 1280x1024, Benq LCD 1280x1024, Hisense LCD 1920x Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5450

DISPLAY=:0.1 totem
If it works just edit your '/usr/share/applications/totem.desktop' to use this cmd.
