The following music players are supported:
beep-media-player (dbus version, get it from http://bmpx.beep-media-player.org/site/Downloads, there is a repository with ubuntu packages)
amarok (Untested! Please report bugs!)
beep-media-player (old version)
xmms2 (Untested! I think it works for Listen as it just checks to see if xmms2d is running, please report bugs!)
If more than one music player is started the requested action will ocurre to the first music play on the above-mentioned list.
