How To Solve AC3-DTS-MLP Audio Problem in MX Player

In my previous post, I explained how to block all ads with Adblock Plus in Firefox. In this post, I will talk about how to solve AC3-DTS Audio Problem in MX Player. MX Player provides full control on video in android. It is best video player for Android smartphones & tablets. If your device doesn’t support your video format then you can play that video with MX Player. Since the 1.7.33 update to MX Player, many users are running into a new problem: there’s no sound in certain videos. In the 1.7.33 release, MX video player removed support for two audio codecs: AC3 and MLP. MX Player removed these codecs due to licensing issues, it is the matter that MX Player will no longer support AC3 & MLP audio formats.
However, there is a simple way that downloads the custom codecs for MX Player and then your problem will solve again with the relatively little hassle.
