I know long title sorry tried to make it specific.  As it states I am having screen tearing but its kind of unique at least to me.  I have my 144hz monitor using DP for G-Sync and for my 2nd monitor its connected via HDMI.  The problem I am having is when I am gaming and only when I am gaming when I try to watch any videos on my 2nd monitor (AOC) through any medium Web/VLC there is significant screen tearing.   I have tried watching Youtube/Twitch/Netflix...and using vlc/MPC and they are all tearing ONLY while gaming.  I like watching things as many of us do while we game.  I am just curious if anyone has had a similar issue and been able to resolve it or knows of a work around.  Any help would be appreciated and Thank You in advance.

Streaming video can be very hard on the PC's hardware as the stream needs to be separated into the video and audio components, decoded, and fed to the appropriate hardware.  You are also, already, taxing the heck out of the video card playing the game.  If your system supports it, try enabling the onboard graphics and connecting the AOC monitor to it.  You ought to see some change; but, if it is not enough, your only hope may be to lower the quality settings for the games you play.
