Hi Sergey,

They are not media players, but programs that allow you to execute a
(et al.) given a particular key press or key press combinations. Lineak
ships with 10.?, and you can use and look for Sven.
There is a page of sorts for lineak on sourceforge with some decent

MultiMedia keys, if they are recognized by X.
Some configuration is required of course. ;)
