And does it work in any other android app (except for netflix/amazon/etc)?

I don't think it does, at least up to android 7 - there you have options to forward surround sound to hdmi/spdif, but in android 5/6 the OS always downmixes to 2.0.

Yes, of course if source has 5.1 audio.
I open video from rutor for ex in HD Video Box am all is OK, but the problem are in freezes.

This app for torrent stream is the best, but I don't know why audio is 2.0 not 5.1 if sourse has 5.1
