Video lock screen plugin doesn't work after closing laptop lid

Can’t sign up on Opendesktop for some reason so I’m posting here

I have an issue with the video lock screen plugin for plasma 5. Basically when I lock the screen through the keyboard shortcut it’s fine, but when I close my laptop lid, the lock screen turns black and when I try to play the video file it either shows a black screen or an error that the file doesn’t exist (Dolphin shows the thumbnail just fine though). The only way to fix this is rebooting the system. I tried reinstalling the plugin but the same issue occurred. I’m using Arch Linux on Plasma 5.27.10
