    Many apps do not play sound, also causing video lags in video players. I got some of these apps to work using SoundAbout with headphones plugged in.

    System: I have a new Xiaomi Mi 5s, on which I installed a LineageOS 14.1 ROM (Android Nougat) and gapps.

    Different apps behave differently. For example:
    - Google Photos video player: no sound and choppy video. Only works with headphones and using SoundAbout to route audio via "Wired Headphones"
    - YouTube app: similar to Google Photos, but had to route audio via "Wired Headset (with Mic)".
    - Chrome-embedded YouTube: works without a glitch.

    VLC player may shed some light on the subject: It didn't work at first, but now it works perfectly after I configured it to use "OpenSL ES" instead of "AudioTrack" (Settings => Advanced => Audio output). It works with and without headphones.

    Phone calls, ringtones and alarms work fine.
    I haven't tried bluetooth yet.

    Welcome to Android Central! If any of this happens with preinstalled apps, does it still occur in Safe Mode? How to turn on safe mode on Xiaomi Mi 5

    I don't know what preinstalled apps can play audio. I think "Music" is one, which I now checked and does not play at all. The time counter is stuck between 0 and 1 seconds.
    Safe mode does not help.

    I opened a LineageOS bug report: BUGBASH-1160. They might know something.
