    There is a very annoying bug in Oxygen OS 4. It doesn't handle properly some large audio files, if you resume playing or if you try to skip to the middle of the track it starts over from the beginning, even if the cursor position stays in the middle.
    It happens with long podcasts (more than one hour) in many different applications (like Pocket Casts). Podcasts examples : "After Hate", "Super Cine Battle" (French podcasts)

    There are a few threads about this bug on reddit or XDA, but so far there is no known workaround. It seems to specifically happen with large VBR MP3 files (CBR seems to work fine).




    Please OOS team, fix this very annoying bug, it is definitely a major problem, it is impossible to follow podcasts unless hearing them from start to end in one single time (which is difficult for long podcasts).

    Supposedly, also, it can be fixed in developer options, but i do not know how.

    The mp3s also can be exported to vlc media player, but that still means the OOS is broken while handling it.

    Please address and fix this. Fix the variable bit rate/asymmetrical bit rate/constant bit rate encoding bug. It is terrible.

    This issue has resurfaced in the most recent version of Oxygen OS 5.0.1

    Whatever you did before to fix it worked great, but it needs to be done again. Thanks.

    It is really getting ridiculous that there is no movement on repairing this issue between builds .

    Any news from OnePlus about this? This is ridiculous how this problem is figured out since a long time ago (by amazing peoples!) been fixed and come back again. I mean, the problem is clearly identified. It would be very nice to have a update about this situation from OnePlus team.
