I've already considered this solution, but it doesn't work, because of root
permissions needed: if I run this command as a normal user, here's the result:

$ nice -n -20 /usr/local/bin/mplayer
nice: cannot set priority: Permission denied

I want to always run the process with maximum priority as normal user.
