As is said in the title: When a media file is selected, in Nautilus or just on the desktop, and I press SPACE, a media player comes up - which application is responsible for that? For example on audio, it displays a record icon along with basic artist info.

It's not coming from eog, not from the default audio player, etc.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with GNOME 3.x. Is it a GNOME integrated player, on the newer 3.x series of gnome?? On another machine, it simply fires the default player, mplayer or gnome on audio or video respectively...

It is Gnome Sushi. You can remove it in terminal (ctrl+alt+t) by sudo apt-get remove gnome-sushi
