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?

KDE we assume?

Anyway seems to be known.

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.
