If unset or set to *, mpris-remote will communicate with the first player it finds
registered under "org.mpris.*" through D-BUS. If you only have one MPRIS-compliant
player running, then this will be fine. If you have more than one running, you will
want to set this variable to the name of the player you want to connect to. For
example, if set to foo, it will try to communicate with the player at "org.mpris.foo"
and will fail if nothing exists at that name.
