Lxde is running only on root
Kodi is running only on root

you are referring to a special group/typ of software that require access to video and audio.

Just install something else like web server, sonarr, radarr, transmission, docker, squeezelite aso. You will see they are using own user. Your statement that ALL software title running with root user is not correct.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
