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. Now, let’s talk about how to solve the AC3-DTS audio problem in MX Player, which many users have faced since the 1.7.33 update. MX Player is one of the best video players for Android smartphones and tablets, offering full control over videos on your device. However, with the latest update, MX Player removed support for two audio codecs, AC3 and MLP, due to licensing issues. This means that certain videos may not have sound when played on MX Player.

But don’t worry! You can still play videos with AC3 and MLP audio formats on MX Player by downloading and installing custom codecs. With these codecs, you can restore the audio support for AC3 and MLP formats with relatively little hassle.

So, if you’re facing the AC3-DTS audio problem in MX Player, simply download the custom codecs and follow the instructions to install them. This will allow you to enjoy your favorite videos with sound once again on MX Player.
