The screensaver does come on while watching movies with MPlayer from subversion.
With the same setup, it's working fine with MPlayer-1.0rc2 but not with MPlayer from subversion (head).

Linux from scratch
Linux 2.6.24
xscreensaver 5.04

mplayer -stop-xscreensaver somemovie.avi

Also with 1.0rc2 I see this in console:

xscreensaver_disable: xscreensaver wid=8388808.

which is missing for the svn version.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The screensaver support hacks were removed, only the official X API is supported.
If your screensaver does not support these, use the way described under hertbeat-cmd in the man page.
