I've recently installed Ubuntu 13.10, and wasn't aware of this web integration service. So when i visited youtube in firefox, and it asked me to install something to make it easier, some youtube service, i did. And since then, i have a youtube option to control in my volume applet in the panel along with rhythmbox. How can i remove the youtube from my volume?

Thanks a lot!

if it is a firefox plugin as you mentioned than try to press

ctrl+shift+a or simply go for firefox and find addons than you will see all installed components.

deactivate it or remove it , your choice

I have deactivated all three of the addons: Ubuntu online accounts, Unity desktop integration, Unity websites integration - but the youtube is still in there. And i loged out and loged back in. –  holden Oct 24 '13 at 9:58
can you provide me a screenshot plz ? –  Private Oct 24 '13 at 9:59
Would, but it (indicator) disappears right before the screenshot occurs. Now i also have an Ubuntu Music Store indicator there also, and i can't get rid of it :( –  holden Oct 25 '13 at 19:11
