With android 7 the do not disturb mode has changed. I do not know of anyway (at this time) to change the behaviour of the dnd mode.
You can, however, instead of turning on dnd simply switch to the priority mode. If you have not configured any priority contacts or anything like that it does behave exactly like the pre-android-7 dnd mode including normal media playback.
