This seems wildly unlikely, thinking historically. I am far from convinced that one app to play them all is even a good fit for user needs in all situations. It's a nice goal, but IMO we shouldn't be making desktop-wide design decisions based on this premise. There are just too many reasons why people both want and need multiple media players on their desktops.
