Airpods - strange issue while using PC
I bought a USB 4.0 dongle for my PC, and plugged into Win-10-64 bit, using in a Core i7 4770, H97M-D3H motherboard. I also have the Airpods from Apple, bluetooth headphones. I paired them and tried listening to everything from my PC, and they worked OK.
One thing I noticed is that once paired, if BT is reenabled (in case you disable), the Airpods will reconnect automatically, meaning that if you are listening to your iPAD they will "steal" the signal.
I created a shortcut in the desktop to make things easier, and
Now, about the issue I am having here:
- First of all: using Media Player Classic Home Cinema or VLC, it doesn't matter.
- If a video has multiple subtitles or audio tracks, and I switch to another while using these Airpods, the audio is 100% muted and switching back to the previous track won't fix this. I have to close MPC/VLC and reopen, then the audio comes back.
Meaning that if I want to listen to #track 2, I have to disable BT and reenable, if (and only if) the audio from track #2 is playing already.
Now what kind of bug is that? It seems that the mere switch of a track (also subtitles) can trigger this.
There's also the fact that the emulator SNES9x is muted for these Airpods, while epSXe and PCSX2 (for example) are not, but this is another issue that is perhaps not related to this, and that I already reported in their online board.
Now, what could be causing this other issue?
