The gesture feature is one of the coolest features of MX Player. Overall, MX Player is the player which is loved by all and known to every Android enthusiast. However, With the new update, the developers have removed some existing codecs.

However you can manually download the necessary MX Player Codecs to play those type of files, all the MX Player Codec are available below. You Can Also Download MX Player APK/MX Player Pro Apk and Download MX Player for PC from these links.

  10. I only see APK files, not zip files, available to download. MX Player only recognizes zip files if installing the codecs through the app. If I install the APK file after downloading, it doesn’t help. It says it installs but I still can’t play anything with AC3 audio. If I can’t get it to work I’ll have to use VLC.

    1. Hey Sorry , But we ware having some issue with the file hosting company.

      All the codecs are available for download, Download the one you want.

      Have a good dat JD 🙂

      1. YES! SUCCESS!
        The new zip files work perfectly and the audio sounds better than VLC.
        THANK YOU!

    1. Download the codec for your mx player from this page, Read the page carefully you will understand yourself.

  11. This isn’t working for me and I don’t see any links for the zip file. I need the 1.8.* version for MX Player with Marshmallow so I downloaded the apk and installed it, and it installed seemingly successfully but MX Player still says No AC3 Audio when I play a movie. Come on, wth is up with this? Where is the zip? I’d rather just do it manually.

    1. Sorry for your issue, We have included the mx player codec zip files download links. You can download the codec now.

    1. You have to download the necessary codec from above. Read the post carefully you will understand the whole process.

  12. I cant downlaod the codec for my samsung galaxy s7 edge
    . I am facing ac3 audio prob and these codecs are not starting downloading. Please help.

    1. Hi! I am also using galaxy s7 edge and mine worked after few attempts.
      Go to your mx player and tap the (three dots) tap “help” then “about” to check your player version (mine is Version 1.8.9 (ARMv7 NEON).

      Go back to this page and download and go to the “zip files downloads” then download the zip files related to your player version. I downloaded all the ARMv7 Neon.

      Then go ahead and open your mx player again. It will ask you to install the codec (i think). Tap “ok”, and the player will restart. Wait for a few seconds for the player to reopen by itself. Play the video you were having trouble with.

      Delete the zip files from your device’s download folder.

      That’s what i did and mine worked. I hope this helps.

  13. I gotta tell this..
    I thought it wouldn’t work after the .apks i downloaded didn’t. So i checked my player version and then downloaded the .zips. that did it! Haha.. thanks.

  14. Thank you sooooooo much… It’s solved now.. Thank you for the help. Its so helpful.. 👍
