Something definitely up with the python bindings. This example works fine from Vala/C.

Simple test script above works Michael.

Two things with your script Michael

1) You don't need to pass in the full path. As long as pass you the name of a desktop file that can be found within the XDG path then it will register
2) You are not calling export() on the player instance.

It seems that the problem was in my .desktop file, if Name= contained a space or even a \s, it wouldn't work. If I remove the space, or used an underscore, it worked fine. The XDG spec seems to allow spaces (or \s instead of a space) in that field, is there a reason it doesn't work for the Sound Menu?
