by dims i mean lights out, my english is not so good. there is mplayer at terminal, i guess mplayer is the backend. i would like to use smplayer

At Smplayers preferences "Disable screensaver" is checked, also i put "heartbeat-cmd="gnome-screensaver-command -d" at /home/serendipity/.mplayer/config file

thanks for info , cat ~/.mplayer/config add stop-xscreensaver="yes" and will be fixed :)

Well a workaround is to install the caffeine gnome extension https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/517/caffeine/ so that it disables dimming with the applications you choose (you can do it in the caffeine settings)

That extension seems perfect solution for me, but i can't install shell-extension, i downloaded and tried via cli and from firefox i turn on, dialog box pops up, after choosing install nothing happens and i refresh, it shows off. In Software it shows caffein pending
