Thanks!  Now I really got the solution proposed by Jorgen Schaefer.
Of course this change would work also for other backends for which
playable-p will check if the executable file exists.

The only situation I can think of where may patch could help, is for
container formats like .avi or .mkv in which the codecs used can vary
and the best way to know if a player can play those media is by
starting it and check its return code.

Obviously my patch alone isn't enough without player return code
