    Using Safari and either ClickToFlash or Youtube5 extensions, whenever I open an embedded video in fullscreen mode, the screen dims after a while and then turns off (as per Energy Saver prefs).

    Flash video manages to override this, as does Quicktime application.

    Is there anything I can do to keep my "normal" energy saver prefs but not have to intermittently move the mouse when I'm watching online embedded video?

    I use an app called Caffeine to stop this from happening. Just activate it before you watch a video and you don't have to worry about the issue you're having(it stops your Mac from going to sleep or dimming the screen while activated).

    I have this same problem as well, even on official videos from How can apple expect everyone to abandon flash when their own videos don't even work!
