Expected results:

There should be an API for music and video streaming web sites like soundcloud/spotify/youtube/... to interact with the systems media player API like MPRIS.
So users are able to see the current playing track/video and control playback (pause, play, stop, forward, backward, ...) like they're used to do directly in their system.

Yes. I didn't know that there is such an API but it looks  like it's the right place.
