ALSA output not adhering to always_on ?

Post by robiwan »

I'm running Volumio (with Music Player Daemon 0.20.18 (128d910-dirty)) and I've set the always_on "yes" flag for ALSA output in /etc/mpd.conf. Is this supposed to work? Acc. to https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/user.h ... io-outputs, always_on should be one of the properties supported by all audio output plugins. However, ALSA output is disconnected whenever I stop/pause audio.

Sorry, your MPD version is unsupported. See https://www.musicpd.org/help/

Ok then. Is the always_on flag supposed to work with a *supported version* of MPD?
