[mythtv-users] sudo nice --5 xine Permissions?

I'm experimenting with DVD players that have dvdnav.  Currently xine is 
the front runner but I still get the occasional dropped frame even after 
increasing its buffer size.

So I want to try increasing its run time priority.  I have a script, 
dvd.sh, that  kicks off xine in the DVD Player field of Myth.  The OS is 
punting because of the "sudo nice --5."  How do I tell the OS that 
anyone can run dvd.sh and they don't need to be root to do this.
