I am using mplayer with an Intel iMac. I connected the mini DVI output to my TV thanks to the VGA adapter. I am now using the extended desktop configuration.

I configured the screensaver to be on main screen only. But when I launch the video on the TV using fullscreen, the screensaver is deactivated by mplayer. And as there is no way to switch it off, it will be show my desktop during the whole video instead of launching screensaver or switching off.

So, is there a way to tell mplayer not to deactivate screensaver and to let it run on my main screen while I am using it in full screen mode on my TV?

Any help will be really appreciated.
