DC resumes podcast at wrong time stamp

I love DoggCatcher. At the moment it gives me a challenge:

DoggCatcher Version: 1.2.4116 Paid
Device: Fairphone 1
Android Build: Android 4.2.2

SUMMARY: When I have been listening to a podcast, pause it and resume, it starts at an earlier time than the playback had reached.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Start DC
2. Listen to downloaded podcast to, say 24:45
3. Press pause
4. Use other apps or none at all for a few hours
5. Open up DC again
6. Press play to resume OR tap the podcast on the list to resume play
7. Podcast resumes playback, but not at 24:45, but 12:15.

WHAT HAPPENS: The spinner/progress wheel shows the equivalent progress - as in, say, halfway through the file; but when it starts playback, the indicator to the mark where it starts playing, like a quarter through. No apparent consistency to how far back it jumps.

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN: Playback should resume at original time stamp.

FREQUENCY: Not 100%, but frequently. Based on impression: 80%.

Fairphone Devices

Fairphone devices are running a custom ROM version of Android 4.2.2 and is incompatible with DC's playback features, especially the variable speed feature
Possible solutions: Enable "Resume Hack" and "Seekbar Hack" (In the DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Advanced) and disable "Variable Speed Enabled" (In the DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Audio Player)

DC resumes podcast at wrong time stamp

I know this thread is old.
I'm using a One Plus 3t (Android 7.) and this is happening to me too.
I went to Settings>Advanced to Enable 'Resume Hake' and 'Seekbar Hack' but both options were not choosable (although they were there).
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Curious

Curiously, my problem actually went away after switching to a OP3T.

Playback issue

The current playback issue only affects some devices running custom roms or the latest update of Android, and not necessarily the entire production run of the OnePlus 3T. The Fairphone device's custom rom of Android did not work with DC's playback features
