Preventing screensaver when playing movie?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Suppose that we have the following situation. A user has told the system to "turn off the display after N minutes of inactivity". Then he starts the media player, opens a file and presses a button called play. The media player interprets this as the user saying "play this movie, but do not turn off the display while playing it, because i will watch it even though I do not interact with the system". So the media player has to do something like this. Each time the application updates the display with a new animation frame, it marks that update with a special flag, indicating that this is the kind of thing that the user may be watching even though he has not interacted with the system for a while. System then resets the screensaver countdown. However it does not reset the session locking countdown, because only real input may do that, for security reasons. So the user may have to give his password when he wants to interact with the system after playing the movie. How can the media player achieve this with xorg? _______________________________________________ xorg mailing list xorg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/xorg
