I have a problem running vlc with sudo. I tried it with vlc-wrapper but it
doesn't want to read dvb adapter when it is started with sudo. Do I have to
specify somewhere which user can run vlc with vlc-wrapper and have all
permissions. I would really appreciate any help about that.
I was running vlc 0.8.6 with sudo without any problems before.
Here is the log of vlc running wirh sudo:
