+So you use several media players, sometimes at the same time (like 'shell-fm'
+running in a terminal, and something else with a GUI), and sometimes you like to
+try out new media players for a while. And you want the the media buttons on
+your keyboard to Do The Right Thing without having to reprogram keyboard
+shortcuts. This package is a solution to that problem.
+You can set up keyboard shortcuts to map the play/pause button to 'player_do
+playpause' etc, and player_do generally does the Right Thing.
+The currently supported programs can be seen by running 'player_do help'. To
+add more supported programs, see the existing code in the 'backends' directory.
+Patches gratefully received!
+Many players support the MPRIS DBUS protocol, and will be supported without
+a specific backend. If you only need support for those players, consider
+using `MPRIS-remote <http://incise.org/mpris-remote.html>`_.
