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!

This OMG Ubuntu has a good guide:

[How to] Remove Multiple Players from Ubuntu Sound Menu | OMG! Ubuntu!

Navigate to the following ‘key’ using the tree menu in the left-hand sidebar:

com > canonical > indicator > sound > blacklisted-media-players

Double click the closed brackets next to ‘blacklisted-media-players‘ and enter the names of the players you wish to hide inside, bookending its name with two apostrophes (‘).


If you're looking to remove more than one, use a comma:

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
