Run VLC player on Kali Linux 2.0

Allow VLC player to run as rooooooooooot...... :)

Most Kali Linux VLC Player does not work as the root user. Despite some problems to install VLC player. Today I'll show you how to run Kali Linux VLC Player as the root user. Follow me.......

If you try to open vlc player as root, you will face the error like this:

"VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
cannot be run by non-trusted users first)"
To allow ROOT user to run VLC:-

Go to the terminal and type this command:

sed -i 's/geteuid/getppid/g' /usr/bin/vlc

That's mean you are opening /usr/bin/vlc and replace geteuid to getppid.
Now you are allow to run VLC player as the root user.

Thanks. Have a sweet life :)
