As a follow-up to myself:

Aaron Bockover (Banshee's maintainer) has been collecting data, to work
towards getting HAL to recognise more players. So if you have a player
that doesn't work, go visit,
download the tool, and send him the data for your player.

The only way we can improve HAL's detection of audio players is with
your help!
