How To Run VLC As Root

"VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry. If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root and cannot be run by non-trusted users first)."

This error says straight forward vlc can not be run as root privileged user. Just edit /usr/bin/vlc using hexedit (you need to install this app) and search for geteuid and replace it with getppid. Save file & Exit.
