    I am experiencing an issue that should already be resolved (see https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/podcast-playback-issue.477817/)
    In short: long audio files like podcasts (some podcasts last over 2 hours) are not fully supported by the audio player. Apps like Podcast Addict actually gave me an error message telling me that the internal audio player isn't fully supported. Some other apps have been working for other people and the OnePlus Bug Support team flagged this issue as solved but it isn'

    Excuse me. Although this previously was an issue in the Podcast Addict app, it seems to work naturally in Player FM's podcast player. The reason I thought it wasn't was the podcast uploader's fault. It ended abruptly.

    Please flag as solved, thank you.

    Here, an répondre front podcast addict développeurs

    Playback is handled by the device built-in player, not by the app. The
    issue you're describing is, unfortunately, a known issue of recent OnePlus
    3 & 5 firmwares.
    It means that the device doesn't fully support the file encoding. Because
    of that, every app relying on the device player will have the same issue.
    Unfortunately, there's no way to fix this on the app side.
    Only a ROM update can fix this. In the meantime, you can disable the
    internal player for podcasts experiencing this issue and use a player like
    VLC instead as VLC uses its own player engine.

    stijnnh - I don't believe think that changing apps is a solution that oneplus would consider adequate. Imaging all the people who don't choose the one app that works with the issue on the phone and get upset. This is an issue that was solved before in version 4.1.1, and therefore can be solved again. Until the OS is updated.

    Personally I'm a BeyondPod user. But I guess I'll make the switch to Podcast Addict since I've heard it's widely used and I guess they even have a fix for me now, which is great.
