beatboxdefault-programsgnomemusic player

I have installed Beatbox but I can't set it as default music player in System Configuration of Gnome-shell. How can I set it manually?

I add information:
BeatBox can't be actually define like default audio player in Gnome: https://bugs.launchpad.net/beat-box/+bug/972956
I want to know how can I define manually the default audio player in the same manner that I can define the default calendar app: How to change Gnome Shell calendar default application?

Here is how I got beatbox to be the default. I just installed BeatBox with this command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sgringwe/beatbox
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install beatbox

I opened Ubuntu Tweaks, and clicked on File Type Manager, enter image description here

and changed all the Audio to BeatBox instead of Rhythmbox.
