 Unless you '''know''' the program requires privileges, and you
 '''understand''' why it does, you should not '''try''' running it as root
 just to see if it works.

 Agree that it is an unsafe advice, but there's a possible thread
 limitation associated to a specific user. Processing a live feed within
 allocated timing parameter requires all available hardware resources.
 AFAIK root has no limitations in that regard.
