The fact you can do something with root, but no other user, suggests
your normal user isn't a member of some group.
Is Parole a video program? If so, you should probably put your user
into the video group. I don't know if there's a command to do this, but
you can do it by editing /etc/group as root. There should be a line in
that file looking something like:
where "acm" is the user. If there's no entry for video yet, make one
# groupadd video
(as root, of course).
If video isn't the right group, try reading Parole's documentation. It
might identify the group for you.
Best of luck!
