VLC Annoying Behavior in OpenSuSE


O.k so I thought I could live with it but I just cant. The thing is that when playing a movie with VLC the screen saver starts after 10 min, even if I have choose VLC to disable screen saver when videos are playing.

Easy fix you will say disable screen saver ahead of time if you are planning on watch a movie. The thing is I wouldn't have to if VLC were working correctly.

I would switch to SMplayer but there is no support for ISO files, and Xine only plays DVDs, Totem has a really bad resolution. So I am just frustrated with Video playing in OpenSuSE.

Please understand I posted this entry that way out of my frustration other than that I love OpenSuSE.

And Thank you for sharing your thoughts and suggestion regarding this case.

I just tried smplayer with a dvd.iso and it played just fine.

I simply right clicked the iso and chose smplayer from my menu, smplayer fired up playing the movie with no problems.

How are you trying to open the iso file?

I usually run the application then select to open the file by navigating to the directory where it is storaged.
I am running OpenSuSE 64 BIT with Gnome Shell. I even tried to install VLC from source but appears I am missing a bunch of developer libraries scripts so my ./configure, make, make install doesnt work.

Thank you for the thoughts.
