Bug Description

With VLC, the inelegant CD-playing process goes this way: Insert CD, the popup with "Removable medium is inserted - Type of medium: audio CD - Please select the action you want to perform" appears, select VLC in the popup. VLC opens. Click the Play button, and another window appears where one must click the Disc tab, choose Audio CD, then click the Play button in that window.

By way of contrast, in Edubuntu, one inserts a CD, chooses Rhythmbox from the popup, the app opens, constructs the playlist and begins playing. In short, once you have told it to play a CD with Rhythmbox, it does so.

VLC already registers itself for x-content/audio-cdda via desktop file. If you think this is not enough, please specify what else you want.
