  6. Hi

    I have a Sony Android TV which is connected to my Av Receiver via optical for sound. I have downloaded MX Player via the Google Play Store and updated the sound codec with mx_neon.zip. I have installed the mx_neon.zip as per your instructions and when I play my movies (stored on USB hdd) via MX Player on my TV and my Av receiver is on, I do not get DTS displayed on the Av receiver. If I us the default VIDEO player on my TV the sound is shown as DTS 5.1. I have ticked both the HW boxes. Please can anyone advise of setting(s) to get my AV Receiver to play thr correct codec?

    Thanks

    • sw aka software encoded will play video properly only if your phone CPU can handle to manually decoded the video without help from GPU. Any not sync in video or audio during sw decoder mostly because your CPU not fast enough to handle decode the video properly. Upgrade your device with better CPU will help solve the problem

  20. Hello,

    The apps says that in my case I should go with ARMv7 NEON (Settings/Decoder/General)

    Should I then go with the mx_neon.zip or with the v7_neon_1.9.4.apk?

    If the APK is the better choice, should I stick with the version the developers provide in the Play Store?

    Not sure if there is any difference between the .zip and .apk (Play Store/version available here)

    Reply
  21. Wow. Yipee. So it now supports AC3 and straight DTS which were superseded with Dolby TrueHD and DTS HDMA nearly 10 years ago. When will these formats be supported or are we going to continue claiming that this is the best box even when it doesn’t support any HD audio formats?

  25. 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 ARMv7_Neon_1.8.6.zip ‘unsuccessful’

    DOWNLOAD DOES NOT WORK.

  26. 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.

  27. 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

  28. 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!

  29. 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…

  36. 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?

  38. 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.

    Reply
    • Hi! I am also using galaxy s7 edge and mine worked after few attempts.
      Where:
      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.

  39. 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.

    Reply
  40. 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.
