Bluetooth headphones need restart through pulse vol ctl ---> output

Every time bluetooth headphones are disconnected, upon reconnect it is necessary to click on headphones in pulse vol ctl ----> output window.

For example, after recharge, I turn on phones. Audio says “connected” but no sound until I open puls vol ctl and go to outputs tab and click on the headphones.

I think this is not the normal way to turn on headphones. Any comments or solutions? Took a lot of time and effort to figure out this way to get headphones restarted after a recharge.

I can confirm this behavior which differs from what pulseaudio did, where a default device would take over output as soon as connected. To my knowledge this feature is missing from pipewire. You might consider reporting it upstream.
