Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in vlc (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

This does not affect other players such as Clementine.
Play/Pause control buttons also have no effect on playback.
Skip Next / Previous Buttons work however.
Reproduced on Ubuntu MATE 17.04

I think this is not the correct bug title. In fact, There is no problem when you start a file from the vlc icon in the sound indicator. The problem is on the other way : the indicator sound is not able to know vlc status when a file is started from the file manager.
