VLC simply doesn't tell GNOME to inhibit the screensaver. It's a bug. Possible workarounds:

  • Disable screensaver
  • Move the mouse around once in a while
  • Use another video player
  • Make the screensaver timeout longer in your settings

Either use one of these workarounds, or report a bug.
