Well, this may sound goofy, but I just uninstalled mate screen saver and installed xscreensaver and it doesn't activate during movies, etc., from VLC, and movie player.
xscreensaver does come up with an error, but it doesn't seem to affect the program in any way I can see. It also reliably (so far) activates while we're not using the computer just like it should.
My case appears to be solved, wish there was a solution for everyone - there sure seems to be a lot of folks with the same problem out there.
I'm using 64bit Mint 13 mate install.
paste the hidden folder into ur home and make sure it runs (add it to startup applications also)
so when u open one of those players in the list it wont activate the screensaver.
thatone working fine for me

but it worked well with the 13 Maya also.
sudo pluma disablemss.py

BTW it works flawlessly, thanks a lot for this.
P.S. Just forgot - Happy New 2013 everyone!
