Change The Music Player From The Ubuntu Sound Menu In Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail

Hello Linux Geeksters.

As you may know, Rhythmbox is the default music player on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, so Rhythmbox is also displayed in the sound music menu.

In the sound menu, you can add one or more music players, depending on your preferences. The player list from the Ubuntu sound menu goes as big as you want it.
