What's the real-world difference: Full frame D810 vs. crop D5200 for video?

Hi all,
I'm finding myself doing some video for a web series and need to either put an external monitor on my D810 so I can check composition while recording and standing front of the camera, or for the same cost as a monitor, battery pack and cold shoe bracket, I could just pick up something like a D5200 with a crop sensor and flip out screen and put my professional glass on it. I'm a fish out of water when it comes to video, all of my experience for the past 20 years has been shooting stills. Is there an advantage to using a full frame like my D810 when shooting video? If not, I'll just get a cheaper body like the 5200 as it limits the exposure to accidental damage of my daily full frame workhorse.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
