  1. Thanks for sharing the codec files here..


  2. I have Samsung note 8, it’s using ARMv8-a architecture. Which codec should I use? I couldn’t play rmvb file at the moment, rv40 error keep popping up.

  3. hi dev thanks for great afford. ive downloaded both mx player and neon codec via pc.i cant use my phone due to slow internet connection.ive installed mx player when i open up, it says i have to download codec and bring me straight to google play store. i cant download due to slow connection, any way for me to “manually” add to the directory of the mx player and let it works? thanks

  4. I hav downloaded mx player neon codec from the store….bt i cant find the zip file….mx player still needs its video codec armv7neon 1.9.8 …what should i do????

  5. Hello,

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

    Should I then go with the 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)

  6. 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 So it now supports AC3 and straight DTS which were superseded with Dolby TrueHD and DTS HDMA nearly 10 years ago.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?

  7. I am using android old version which needs version 1.7.12 but it still need video codec. the latest version of video codec is not working. I can’t change android version, what should i do ?

  8. Hi, may I ask you for a request? Is there any chance that you could add a date that signals when you last updated the information on this site? I have no idea how valid the “update” message is and which version of mx player it concerns…

    Thank you!
