Start and Stop buttons in Media players


The issue came up several times before and I believe most will agree now
that consensus is impossible. Short story is, the
Start/Stop/Pause(/Record) buttons behave inconsistently over
applications, mostly because an agreement was not possible so far.


Muine: Start/Stop Toggle button, not changing symbol
Totem: Start/Pause Toggle button, changing symbol
Rhythmbox: Start/Pause Toggle button, changing symbol

Also, all of those application use different icons on the buttons.

Instead of asking application developers to implement one specific
behaviour we could provide a MediaButton widget with Start/Stop/Play/etc
callbacks. Depending on some gconf keys, the widget could display one or
two buttons, send different callbacks and implement the proper

Any comments?
