DPMS is likely what's turning off your display. You'll need to turn it off for your X session. Adding "xset s off -dpms" to your .xinitrc will fix it, or investigate an alternative method here.

Even though the option is included, it seems to have no effect for me.

@LXXero commented a bit ago with building with -DLINUX_X11POWER=on on, id love to see this too.

I've been adding the build flag -DLINUX_X11POWER=on so that plex will keep my screensaver from activating while playing videos. Any chance we could get this in there by default?

I have problems playing Tidal tunes in Plex. After 19 seconds the song stops and the next one starts. Tidal in Plex show's my playlists so it should be connected to my Tidal account.

This does not happen on the macOS desktop client or mobile clients.

Any ideas?

UPDATE: After some investigation it looks like this only happens in the desktop view. If I use the TV view songs are played as expected.

Yeah doesn't work. I launch it from the terminal and I never get a window.

An alternative:

gardotd426 commented on 2020-12-31 03:01

So, the player isn't loading at all. The window opens, it shows the big PLEX MEDIA PLAYER logo for a second, and then I just get a window with the spinning wheel after launching, and I can leave it sit for 20 minutes and it never loads.

Launching from a terminal provides no help, I just get:

matt-archlinux% plexmediaplayer
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

Screen goes black on a regular interval (~20 mins?). Audio continues. Moving mouse brings the screen back. Tried setting Screensaver to None in PMP settings and disabling all power save settings in sys. No luck. Doesn't happen on browser version, though browser version has other issues.

Any advice to keep the screen from going off? The package works great otherwise--way better than browser version.
