The entire GUI is frozen at this point.

Problem is that a video is not really a screensaver, when you start a video you basically deactivate the screensaver. So the addon does a sort of a hack...
It starts by calling some input for the screensaver to be deactivated, waits for the event and starts the video playback. Sometimes, or for some machines the waiting time may not be enough and the screensaver starts playing near the deactivate action..freezing the interface.
I'll probably add a setting for users to configure this waiting timeout manually Smile

I understand. I am happy to test out some code when you author it Wink

I'm getting stuttering when the add-on is run after the screensaver activates, but not when I test it out. I was thinking at first it could be because of my internet connection, so I setup a folder on my server and tried to download the videos to there, but it's not working.

Debug log for downloading the videos: http://xbmclogs.com/pwwbru1xb

Thanks for bringing this awesome videos to Kodi!

But the videos are not shuffeled here. They always have the same order.
I installed it from the offical repositories. v1.3.0
Already tried to reinstall the addon.

Thanks for a great add-on!

One thing thought - right now when screensaver is starting there's a message "Initialiazing" or whatever and notification sound. Can you get rid of the both? It makes experience a little bit smoother.

Plus I don't know whether it's a bug or not - but you can't start a screensaver using PREVIEW in Kodi's Appearences - Screensaver setting. It's just shows same notification and that is it (I got all the videos downloaded locally). But it's still working while idling in the menu
HTPC: XBMC Gotham 15.2 on Intel NUC DCCP847DYE (Intel Celeron 847), 2GB RAM, Samsung PM830 SSD, OpenELEC 6.0.0
SYSTEM: Panasonic TX-P65ST50, Pioneer VSX-922K, Wharfedale Diamond 9.5 + Diamond 9.CS + SW150 sub, Logitech Harmony 880 remote

There's a setting in the addon settings to disable the notification. The preview is working fine for me on all my machines running Isengard unfortunately I cant reproduce the bug.
Can you provider more details about your system?

@enen92 - Any time for you check into the issue I am experiencing?

Hey enen92,
amazing Addon! I love it. However I've got a severe problem. When I play music or radio channels via the radio addon for Kodi and do not browse Kodi, the screensaver activates anyways. Meaning: Even though a file is played (music or radio), the video tries to play however freezes immediately. The music keeps playing but when I press a button to get rid of the frozen video/image the playing stops and I am back in the main menu or file browser.

I would love either of these solutions:
1) Play the screensaver videos during listening to music
-I know this is not possible as the screensaver videos are regardes as normal videos and you cant play two files at a time.

2) Deactivate the screensaver when playing audio files.
-I dont know if this is possible but would solve my problem too, i guess.

Thank you in advance for tips and tricks!

I use:
Raspberry Pi2
Kodi 15.2 Isengard in openelec 6.0.1

EDIT: http://9to5mac.com/2015/10/19/apple-tv-4...nsavers-2/

Sorry, life has been pretty busy lately. Finally found some time to work a bit on it. It turns out I was instantiating the monitor class after the onDeactivate method Sleepy The monitor class would only catch the onDeactivate method by luck lol making the interface to freeze.
Also it looks like Helix has some problems with the screensaver (in fact it was developed and tested using Isengard) so I decided to bump also the python ABI version and hopefully will ask the Team to move it to isengard repository.
Can you please test the version in master and check if you still have troubles with it?

Sorry for the big delay

PS: Tested on the weaker hardware I have available (RPI 1) and no freezes Smile

Also moved the Player.HasMedia check somewhere before the window is started so with the version that is now on the master branch the screensaver should not be triggered when playing media. Please test and report back so an update can be issued:

Dude I love you. Works perfectly. My problem is solved!
However, the start of the screensaver changed. It looks like this: Youtube Video
So basically it is retrieving the video list showing the Golden Gate bridge image in the background and loading a random video (according to my settings) afterwards.
As far as i remember this has not always been like that.
If yes, dont mind and ignore this.

It was supposed to be like that from the start Smile The bug wasn't allowing it to behave like in your video.
Thanks for the video as well, added to post #1 Big Grin

Hi there I love the screensaver its amazing!! I was wondering if it is not possible to play music via kodi during screensaver playback due to the prior mentioned video usage. Would it be possible to allow airplay while the screensaver was active? I wanted to airplay music through kodi to my stereo and limit the burn in on my plasma! thanks great work!

Nop, the same problem applies. It doesn't matter much how the audio/videos reach Kodi but how they are played.
