I wanted to install TracktForVLC to track my movies and tv shows automatically. But I am having a trouble setting up vlc on my ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Like mentioned in Configuration, I went to Tools, Preferences, Interfaces and Main Interface. When I check Remote Control Interface, oldrc is set as initial value. I replace oldrc with rc and click save. When I check preferences again, Remote Control Interface is not checked and input form is blank. So I left it on oldrc, which stays there. Then I want to save RC settings TCP command input insert localhost:4222 and hit save. Again, when I reopen preferences, input form where I wrote localhost:4222 is blank. Any idea why my settings is not stored?
According to one of the answers from this question, I tried running sudo vlc gives me the below response:
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).
Any other help answer will be much appreciated.
