I use Wayland Gnome-shell F28. How do I inhibit gnome-screensaver while player videos on VLC or Smplayer? When I use mate-destkop/gnome-xorg the screensaver is inhibited while playing videos. Can anyone help?

Theoretically this should disables screensaver (uncheck and check):


vlc -> tools -> preferences -> show settings 'all' -> video -> disable screensaver


smplayer -> preferences -> general -> video -> disable screensaver
