Guide to Add Custom Codec to MX Player to Support DTS and AC3 Audio: MX Player is one of the very well known applications from the Google Play Store. It has been around for years now, and some people take it as an essentiality to have on their smartphones. This is due to the vast variety of formats that MX Player supports. As of 2016, MX Player remains to be the only video player on the Google Play Store that has the biggest library of formats available. This means that no matter which kind of video file you have, MX Player will not struggle to play it fine.

However, with the last few updates, MX Player has seen some major issues, and a lot of fans have not liked that from it. With the last few updates, MX Player has removed support for DTS and AC3 audio, which is a big bummer for some people. People who have videos in the format of Dolby Digital Audio might suffer from this loss.

If you are a victim of this unfortunate update, then some of your videos will have lost their audio.
