    VLC Screensaver

    So I have VLC installed and have the setting to Disable Screensaver. Works like a charm. The only problem is it works too good.

    I want to disable the screensaver when I am in full screen mode watching a video. If I have that video not in full screen, lets say paused, then of course I don't want it to disable the screensaver. Anyone know how to accomplish this?

    One option would be to install a program called Caffeine that gives you a panel button to cut the screensaver on or off.
    Escaping is easy; staying free is hard.

    Sounds pretty good.

    How do I add VLC to it, for the automation?

    What would the process be called...
