I'm playing a custom modpack, and it takes a good 6-7 minutes to load - even on a beefy pc - so I don't really like having to relog, but when I turn off my headphones to charge them, after turning them back on, Minecraft no longer plays sound through them.
It seems that disconnecting the audio output stops Minecraft sounds until you reload the game.
I've tested this with some Steam games, and as well as YouTube, and it would seem that the problem is Minecraft related. The issue does not present itself in any other environments
Is there any way I could bypass this? I had an idea of basically instead of connecting My headphones to MC, I could pair them as:
Headphones --> Program --> Minecraft
So that the program would always get the audio, then play it to my headphones, but I have no idea if a program like this exists, and if it does, what on earth it's called.
