I was playing songs for approx. 25 mins and meanwhile I was working with too many pacakges like torrent downloader,Eclipse, Firefox ,File Browser and some other apps when I Stopped Rythmbox It didn't stop instead when I restarted it two diffrent Rythmboxes were playing simultaneously after closing one of them (which I could reach) was closed but the previous one which cannot be seen but heard is still playing till now what to do how to stop it?

I have tried

ps aux | grep rhythmbox

but no rythmbox is active

One of the reasons you aren't seeing anything is because it's rhythmbox instead of rythmbox.

The most viable theory is that there are two processes running. You can try:

killall rhythmbox.

Typos can be dangerous.
