    mplayer screen goes black

    Hello all,

    I am facing an issue with mplayer .. when i play a movie .. the screen goes black after a delay of some 10 min ... i have used the option stopxscreensaver but it doesnt solve the problem.

    I hava a nvidia graphics card and my videoutput is xv and not x11
    I use icewm as the desktop enviornment.

    thanks

    i would try disabling the screensaver manually when watching videos. i'm not sure what the command is in icewm but if you still have gnome apps installed it would be
    Code:
    gnome-screensaver-preferences
    if ignorance is bliss, where are all the happy people
