Description

If I make videofe a privileged app it works. If I don't, it fails.

If I run omxplayer from a terminal which has been run as user nobody then it works.

This leads me to believe that the problem is that the wrapping xterm for omxplayer is causing the problem when run as user nobody. The xterm is run as group nobody but the terminal has a supplementary group of root.

It's possible the problem is the xterm wrapper doesn't have a proper path for omxplayer when run as user nobody.
