[pulseaudio-discuss] set media.role for VMware client

I'm using VMware Horizon client from kubuntu to work on my companies
windows machine. My idea was to play some music from my own machine
while doing monkey work within VMware. I was very happy to read about
the "cork" mechanism in order to mute that music as soon as I get a
business call or am attending an online meeting within VMware.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out how to set the
"media.role" for the VMware binary. I see, f.ex., that vlc has
media.role=video, but the VMware client doesn't have any. I tried to set
it via a .desktop file, but that fails - probably because the VMware
application I start (vmware-view) spawns some other binary and the
media.role property is not passed on to the child process?
As far as I found while searching, that media.role can be registered by
the application itself but that's not really an option for me with
VMware:) Is there any other way to set / change the media.role for some
binary, maybe even while it's already running?
Thx a lot
