I had this problem for a while, but I think you need a switch/extractor that supports 18Gbps 4K, as they’re apparently more supportive of off-spec signals like Line 5x. I tried a few extractors but didn’t have any success with L5X until I got a Portta-branded switch that advertised 18Gbps support. I didn’t test it for very long (because it came in the mail like ten minutes ago) but it seems to output audio over optical just fine in L5X.
As for being easier to split analogue audio out, it depends on your setup. I play on computer monitors and most desktop amps will only have one or two inputs. If your OSSC is sharing with your HDMI consoles, it’s easiest to extract audio the same way for all of them.
