    VDPAU support only as root


    Sorry for my bad english.
    I have a problem with VDPAU:

    when I use sudo vdpauinfo or sudo nvidia-settings all works fine.
    But when I use only vdpauinfo or nvidia-settings it is not supported anymore.
    I tried the vlc-wrapper on supermode and it worked.
    How can i enable VDPAU on a non supermode user?

    I have ubuntu 17.04.

    I just installed Linux Mint. Now all is fine. It seems to be some bug on ubuntu.
