      Description

      Testing the effect of yanking a USB audio interface cable during playout on 1.9.4, the ON AIR light went gray on disconnect but playout did not automatically restart after USB reconnect (I waited about a minute after reconnect). I heard a click as the USB device powered up (USB Sound Blaster), then nothing. Workaround was to do as root:

      invoke-rc.d airtime-playout restart

      over SSH.

          This is a very low level issue that would need to be addressed by the Liquid soap team. Either we can assign this issue to them, or close this ticket since the workaround of "service airtime-playout restart" is relatively simple.

          I would suggest assigning it to the Liquidsoap team as a manual workaround might cause extensive service interruption (first the sysadmin needs to be made aware of the problem, then has to get shell access to Airtime etc). Also the manual restart interrupts the Icecast stream output too.

          Currently the manual restart of airtime-playout does not work in Airtime 2.2.x snapshot, after a USB disconnect.
