My case is the opposite. The backend runs as a non-privileged user whereas
the frontend as root. However that really shouldn't matter anyway since the
frontend doesn't read the ringbuffer files directly anyway.

With me "Payload Start" always comes, just at times very late. I really need
to track down what's going on because my hack of increasing the retries from
4 to 30 gets really annoying.

- Mark.

Comment (by amadare _ at _ chiphead.net):

 I was having this same problem myself.
 multiple RingBuf(*.mpg) Error: Invalid file descriptor in 'safe_read()'

 believe it to be a permission problem in my case.  backend starts are
 root, frontend as non-root and the mpgs were getting written by backend
 with no read permission for non root.  did a chmod +s on the /video/record
 directory and all is well in the world.
