VLC Does not switch to new audio device while open on OSX
Like many people, I have a dedicated, external sound card. When VLC is open, and I plug in my sound card (or turn it on), audio is not automatically routed to the device.
This is at odds with the Mac ecosystem. iTunes is able to correctly detect a new sound card and switch over mid song/stream.
This bug is frustrating for me as I have to close VLC and re-open it to get it to play through. I know it seems lazy, but due to my studio configuration, I find myself in this situation surprisingly often.
Here is another user with the same issue...
I can confirm that it happens with various other external sound cards, and seems to be a design implication.
