      I remember a manual somewhere on the internet that show how to add media players to the sound menu using dconf-editor or gconf-editor. Need to do some google magic but i;m not sure where it is and if i can find it again.

      press the superkey and type: dconf-editor
      when the configuration editor is open select the following in the menu on the left side: com -> canonical -> indicator -> sound

      Add gmusicbrowser to interested-media-players list or replace rythmbox for the player you like. When done reboot.

      I hope this works for you …
