Description

audiooutput_dx is broken: it creates high CPU utilization and sometimes deadlocks.

Since Windows "MultiMedia?" audio (which is being used by audiooutput_win) has all the necessary capabilities, including DTS pass-through and multichannel audio support, there is no real reason to use DirectX for audio output at all.

This patch will change the default to Windows MM audiooutput.
