In its current form it allow you to control three music players, banshee, rhythmbox and clementine. There is volume control options, shuffle, repeat, album art (even though I couldn’t get it working). You can play, pause, go to previous, next songs from the menu itself.

You could just use the scroll button to control the volume like the volume control in the menu. That means you dont have to click on the volume menu to decrease or increase the volume.

To install it you can download the content from here and then copy the ‘mediasplayers@ycdref’ folder to your gnome shell extensions directory (~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/).Restart Gnome Shell by pressing ([Alt]+[F2], r).
