If you get this error it means you are running the SignagePlayer NOT AS ROOT.
You should follow the video tutorial, reboot the PC and let the SignageController fork the SignagePlayer.
The key is that the SignageController does run with root privileges and so these permissions will pass onto the SignagePlayer and you will no longer get the permission error you are reporting.

Please follow the video install and reboot at the last part of installation.
Also be sure you are using Ubuntu 10.04

Always glad to help,
