Add option to restart the stream automatically if interrupted

I'm using Screamer Radio on my Desktop PC at home, because connected to it are awesome loudspeakers, which can make the best of the 320k quality streams I like to listen to.

But I also use it on a Windows tablet/notebook mobile device which I use at work, connected to a Bluetooth speaker. All the time I run in the problem that wifi connectability is less than ideal and and connection interruptions cause the playback to stop. On normal days this happens a dozen times a day, but the more I move around the more frequent they are.

Upon a disconnection, Screamer Radio always eventually shows me the red warning label with the offer to reconnect, but I would like this step to happen automatically. It's a pain to always have to interact manually when that happens and I'm about to switch to something else that doesn't require frequent manual interaction.

If the buffer length is set long enough, I don't think I'd even notice the connection issues, but no matter if I set that option to the default 5000 or any other higher amount (20000, 60000) it still breaks playback. I did some ping testing and noticed that the wifi connection is usually re-established within 2-3 seconds.
