Summary0017738: 'DLNA Player is turned off or inaccessible' error appears for each track
DescriptionIf the user tries to cast a set of tracks to DLNA and the renderer is unavailable
--> 'DLNA Player is turned off or inaccessible' error appears

The problem is that after this error occurs, MM5 tries to play the next track to the player that MM already knows is turned off, causing the error to re-appear for each track!

What should happen is that once MM detects that the renderer is off/unavailable, it should:
- display the error message
- stop playback
- Optionally switch back to the internal player

From a UI perspective, the best way of doing this would be to use a toast message instead of the current Popup (so that it automatically disappears after e.g. 5 seconds) and include the option to switch back to the internal player. e.g. using existing strings:

DLNA Player is turned off or inaccessible
[x] Internal player

OR

DLNA Player is turned off or inaccessible
[Enable] Internal player
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2334

I cannot replicate,
for me after showing the "Inaccessible" message it stops playback and auto-switches to Internal Player per suggestion in 0016671

Can you generate debug log please?

OK, replicated, playback needs to be initiated once after the player has been turned off.
When a file is playing and the player gets turned off then the bug does not appear and MM stops playback and auto-switches to Internal Player

Assigned back to me.

Verified 2334

For me it works OK now.

@Rusty please close if further UI changes are not needed.

Verified 2334. It doesn't appear as a toast message, but that's not a big deal.
