Description

This has been driving me insane recently.

I've got the only output device: my Bluetooth headphones, whenever I power them off, I have no output devices any longer. My default output plugin is set to Pulse Audio.

What happens when I try to play audio in this case is that Audacious chooses the next available output plugin automatically, it's FileWriter here, so I end up with dozens of written files on the disk which I do not want.

Please add an option to stick to the chosen output plugin and shut down playback completely in the case the output plugin throws an error.

Thank you.
