It's not really clear how your setup works or why running rhythmbox as
a different user would help.  I'm not sure what the actual problem is.

Armed with my lack of knowledge of your setup, I'm going to suggest
running rhythmbox in a stripped down session for some user inside a vnc
server, so your other users can connect to that to control it.  I'm not
sure of the best way of setting this up, or which of the 37 different
vnc servers is best to use.
