BUG: (no support req'd) Bluetooth device disconnect while playing YouTube in browser terminates playback on Roon app

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

MacBook Pro 2019, 2.8GHz i7, 16GB RAM
Mac OS 10.14.6
Chrome Browser Version 88.0.4324.192 (Official Build) (x86_64)
Samsung Galaxy Buds

Roon version 1.8 (build 764)

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

TP-Link Archer AC5400 over WiFi

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Roon Endpoint: iPod Touch > USB DAC

Description Of Issue

Roon Core is installed on the MBP, all interactions are on the MBP.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Connect via Bluetooth any audio device (Samsung Galaxy Buds 1st, gen in my case)
  2. Initiate playback of any music track (Roon Core streams to Roon endpoint)
  3. Open a Chrome browser window/tab and navigate to YouTube
  4. Click any video to start playback (playback via Bluetooth device commences)
  5. Initiate disconnect of Bluetooth audio device (in my case, place buds in charging pod and close cover)
  6. Observe that the YouTube video stops playback (expected outcome)
  7. Also, observe that Roon Core app stops playback (unexpected outcome)

Roon Core continues to function, as expected—that is, click on play resumes track playback.

No support required, but thought I’d file the bug. Thanks!
