This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new 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
