It would be really cool if KPlayer would support the function to be able shutdown xscreensaver while playing, just like MPlayer does. The instructions how to do this are explained in the following link:

    But if MPlayer does it already, why do it twice?

    Because than you have to use the MPLayer instead of KPlayer.
    If you want to watch a movie on KPlayer without shutting down XScreenSaver.
    KPlayer needs this function.

    But KPlayer runs MPlayer anyway, it's the only engine KPlayer uses.

    Am I missing something obvious here?

    I've never had xscreensaver kick in while playing movies in KPlayer...

    When I use MPLayer Xscreensaver does not kick in when I use KPlayer it does.

    Then let's find out why this happens. What you can do is:

    1) play a movie in KPlayer
    2) while the movie is playing, run "ps auxww | grep mplayer"
    3) stop the movie but leave KPlayer open
    4) run the mplayer command line from ps output
    5) see if xscreensaver kicks in or not
    6) remove one option from the mplayer command line
    7) using the new command line, repeat steps 4 through 6

    Do this until xscreensaver kicks in. This way you'll know what option causes it not to work.

    And of course don't forget to tell me the outcome. :)

    [Benny@QRLZ ~]$ ps auxww | grep mplayer

    maybe it has something todo with the configuration file. .

    XScreenSaver is turned off by MPlayer. In case of problems
    please report on the mplayer-users mailing list.
