desktop or the web, and perform useful actions on those items.
Gnome Do also comes with numerous plugins which includes a plugin
to control Rhythmbox, Banshee, one for Exaile and one for XMMS2.
Using these plugins you can press Ctrl + Space on your keyboard and
then for instance type in an artist name, song name or album, then
use the "Tab" button to either play or queue the selected track(s)

get to do all this without going to your music player GUI, but
within Gnome Do.
