  1. 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??

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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…
