The gesture feature is one of the coolest features of MX Player. Overall, MX Player is the player which is loved by all and known to every Android enthusiast. However, With the new update, the developers have removed some existing codecs.

  1. Thank you so much. İ was shocked when my old 1.7.32 version didn’t work. been a little afraid because i love listening to ac3 and DTS codec on my phone. TheY’rereally decent audio formats and That’s why they strict the use of them for free.

  7. I only see APK files, not zip files, available to download. MX Player only recognizes zip files if installing the codecs through the app. If I install the APK file after downloading, it doesn’t help. It says it installs but I still can’t play anything with AC3 audio. If I can’t get it to work I’ll have to use VLC.

    1. Hey Sorry , But we ware having some issue with the file hosting company.

      All the codecs are available for download, Download the one you want.

      Have a good dat JD 🙂

  8. This isn’t working for me and I don’t see any links for the zip file. I need the 1.8.* version for MX Player with Marshmallow so I downloaded the apk and installed it, and it installed seemingly successfully but MX Player still says No AC3 Audio when I play a movie. Come on, wth is up with this? Where is the zip? I’d rather just do it manually.

    1. Sorry for your issue, We have included the mx player codec zip files download links. You can download the codec now.

  9. I cant downlaod the codec for my samsung galaxy s7 edge
    . I am facing ac3 audio prob and these codecs are not starting downloading. Please help.

    1. Hi! I am also using galaxy s7 edge and mine worked after few attempts.
      Go to your mx player and tap the (three dots) tap “help” then “about” to check your player version (mine is Version 1.8.9 (ARMv7 NEON).

      Go back to this page and download and go to the “zip files downloads” then download the zip files related to your player version. I downloaded all the ARMv7 Neon.

      Then go ahead and open your mx player again. It will ask you to install the codec (i think). Tap “ok”, and the player will restart. Wait for a few seconds for the player to reopen by itself. Play the video you were having trouble with.

      Delete the zip files from your device’s download folder.

      That’s what i did and mine worked. I hope this helps.

  10. I gotta tell this..
    I thought it wouldn’t work after the .apks i downloaded didn’t. So i checked my player version and then downloaded the .zips. that did it! Haha.. thanks.

  11. This has really helped EXCEPT that I have one problem…audio sync. The audio cuts out but then comes back a few seconds later but then it’s out of sync. I know it can be adjusted but it only works the first couple times. It becomes untenable. I used the x86 codec because that’s what my version of MX player instructed (and it’s the only one I tried that actually worked).
    Any advice on how to address the sync issue?

  16. Hi .
    I am Imran I have using the Moto e3 power
    Android version 5.00.
    Problem was my player ac3 audio not support.
    This issue how to fix plz help me.

  17. I have Downloaded Beta Version Of Mx player from Google Play Store..Bt there is no any option to select custom codecs..i doesnot support how can i cure this

  18. If anyone having problem in PARSING THE PACKAGE then it’s your mobile problem not the codec file…
    sometimes it happened because when you using older version of google play service or older version OS on mobile…
    solution is that update your google play service and OS version too if available even facing the same problem then change your mobile…

  19. I downloaded the appropriate zip file and configured MX player to use the custom codec file as instructed, but I still don’t hear any audio. It appears as if the audio track is disabled. Please help!

  20. i need only AC3’s zip file, but in the zip file least there is no AC3.
    but there is aio,mips,neon…what does those mean

  21. Comment:I downloaded 1.8.6 codec and it was recognized by mx player and installed. Now the dialogue “ac3 format not supported” doesn’t appear anymore, still audio won’t play

  22. For security reasons, I would prefer to use the Play Store version of the MX Player codec pack, instead of downloading it from this website. I installed it using Play Store, but when I try to get MX Player to set it as the custom codec, neither MX Player nor I know which folder it’s in. I tried manually browsing my phone’s folders but couldn’t find the file. Into which folder does Play Store install the codec pack? (My device is a ZTE Zinger and its Android version is 4.4.2 KitKat.) Thanks in advance for your assistance.

  23. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keeep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  24. Best. video player on the planet? Hardly. Even bad video players don’t require the punter to mess about installing AC3 codec. And what’s so bloody useless about MX is that the downloads don’t work.

    Chrome, Dolphin and Boat report download of ‘unsuccessful’


  25. Downloaded for MX player version 1.8.9.

    it’s really work…

    Thank you very much.

  26. The new version of mx player which is 1.9.0 does not support the codec version 1.8.6. So what to do now??
