So, it would appear there's no way, short of special configurations, to
keep the display from blanking when playing a video?

That hasn't been determined in this thread. Try standalone players like
VLC and/or SMplayer to see if they are smarter. I wouldn't expect such
intelligence from a plugin player or Firefox's native player.

I use VLC to watch videos. It doesn't prevent the screen savers/energy savers from blanking the screen.

Not so Daniel. I use vlc exclusively for TV/DVD viewing.

Go to Tools>Preferences>All [at bottom]>Video and Disable screensaver.

I switched off energy saving/screen saver wherever I found the option, finally used the xset -dpms.

I'd really like to have my screens saving energy when I leave them for some minutes, but I don't want to switch manually, because I forget it.

So, if anyone has the magic trick to have energy saving enabled, but automagically paused when using a video application, that would be really great!

(It used to be like this on OS 11.don'tknowwhich...)
