Summary0004638: Audio playback on macOS (OS X) lags/skips and is unlistenable with Bluetooth audio devices
DescriptionWhen I have my AirPods or my UE Mini Boom connected to my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth, MPD audio skips/lags - there's a pause in the audio every half second or so. Other audio sources (e.g., iTunes, Spotify, Safari) don't do this, so it doesn't appear to be a systemwide Bluetooth audio issue. I've played around with the buffer size settings in my mpd config file, to no avail.
Steps To ReproduceConnect AirPods to MacBook Pro. Play music in MPD. Hear skips.

Forgot to mention -- if I kick the samplerate down, e.g., audio_output_format "22050:*:*", the problem is mostly (but not completely) fixed.

I can fix this by changing the mixer_type to "hardware" for my audio_output:

audio_output {
             type "osx"
             name "macOS"
             mixer_type "hardware"

Seeing the same thing. Bug is present in 0.20.5 but downgrading to 0.19.7 fixes it.
