Bug Description

The 'player section' of the sound menu ( is inconsistent and does not work the same with all the applications. We do have:

* Rhythmbox & similar: is shown everytime, even when the application is not running;
* Totem & similar: is never shown;
* YouTube (via unity-webapps-youtube) & similar: is shown only when a YouTube video page is open in the browser.

Either the items should be always shown or they should be shown only when the corresponding applications are running.
Personally, I think that option 2 is the best (showing the item just when the application is running) because pressing 'Play' when an application is not running does not make sense with Totem and YouTube.
