Allow normal user to watch tv via xawtv

Under Debin GNU/Linux you can use this tip.
Add user to devices ownership group. In this case /dev/video is owned by root user and video group. So I suggested him to add user jimmy to group video with command:
#usermod -G video jimmy

Then he logged in as a jimmy user and was able to watch TV via xawtv application.

Sysadmin because even developers need heroes!!!
