Re: Opening a movie on Full Screen mode

I don't use gnome shell, so i can't be sure about it, but i suspect the issue is with gnome-shell entirely.
As far as i know, mplayer automatically disable screensavers on fullscreen.

You can try to force it by passing "-stop-xscreensaver" to mplayer.
Just add that string (without double quotes) in xt7-player, under General options -> Misc -> additional options, save and restart the stream.
If that's not enough, you can disable dpms functions by invoking:
"xset dpms force off"
Just add that string (without double quotes) in xt7-player, under General options -> Misc -> Pre command,
In the post command string, write:
"xset dpms force on"
Then save to profile and restart the stream.

...see if this is enough and let me know!

I'm not totally sure it fixes the OP problem too, so i'm not going to mark this as fixed, anyway:

Git changes:
--------------------------------------
June, 5 2012
NEW: Option for stop-xscreensaver (General options -> video) - enabled by default.
