  1. Copy the original .desktop file to your home folder:

    cp /usr/share/applications/umplayer.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/

  2. Open that desktop file for editing :

    gedit ~/.local/share/applications/umplayer.desktop

  3. Add the following at the bottom of the file.

X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=Play;Pause;Stop;Fullscreen;

[Play Shortcut Group]
Name=Play
Exec=umplayer -send-action play
TargetEnvironment=Unity
