Summary0017235: Fallback to internal player (when configured player is inaccessible) may be undesired
DescriptionIn cource of solving issues 0016671 and 0016611 we added fallback to Internal player when the configured remote player is inaccessible.

But currently the fallback happens even immediatelly after MM start which may be unexpected:
1) Start MM5, start PlayerXXX and cast some songs to it
2) Close MM5
3) Turn off PlayerXXX
4) Start MM5
=> error message is shown "The PlayerXXX player is turned off or inaccessible."
5) click [OK]
=> MM auto-switched to the "Internal Player"
6) Turn on PlayerXXX
7) Play a track in MM5
=> MM plays to internal player and user needs to manually switch to PlayerXXX

Because the message is a toast message now (see 0018691) it would make sense to revert 0016671 , i.e. doesn't fallback to Internal Player, but rather keep showing the toast message until user switches to another player manually.
