This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

1)… 2)… 3)… Not all of them are quite related to the question.I was trying to find the answer that's why. – el10780 Mar 14 '12 at 16:59
I am updating the answer now, give me a few minutes. – Jorge Castro Mar 14 '12 at 17:15
Okay I saw the changes.But the weird thing is that I don't have a D-Bus option in my VLC'S Control Interface sub-menu. – el10780 Mar 14 '12 at 17:18
You likely need to follow the instructions I just linked to make sure you're running at least version 2.0. – Jorge Castro Mar 14 '12 at 17:21
The version of my VLC is older!Wait to see if I can fix this. – el10780 Mar 14 '12 at 17:22

When you install (and sometimes start) a supported player it should appear there automatically. Mine has right now Rythmbox and Nuvuola.

When I was using Skype it appeared there only after I started it (usually from the dash or the dock).

You can remove an entry from the menu by un-installing the program.

Well.I installed VLC but it is not there!That's why I am doing the question :) It has only Banshee! – el10780 Mar 14 '12 at 16:50
@el10780 your original question lacked any kind of information as to what player you were using, that's why we've been guessing! – Jorge Castro Mar 14 '12 at 17:05
