Undoubtedly, MX Player stands out as the premier video player for Android devices. Its extensive functionality includes background playback and HW decoder capabilities, making it compatible with a broad range of file formats. The exceptional video quality it delivers surpasses that of most other media players.
What sets MX Player apart from its competitors is its remarkable flexibility, which exceeds that of any other media player. Users can customize their playback experience and access a host of unique features. Overall, MX Player truly represents the pinnacle of video playback technology for Android devices.
Whilst there are certainly benefits to using MX Player, it is worth noting that the software does have some limitations. For instance, certain audio codecs, such as AC3, DTS, MLP, and TrueHD, are not currently supported by default.
Thankfully, there is a solution for those who wish to utilize these codecs whilst still enjoying the functionality of MX Player. Custom Codec for MX Player, a script created by the skilled developers at XDA, allows users to overcome these limitations and take full advantage of the player’s capabilities.
To obtain the Custom Codec, kindly download the ZIP file that corresponds to your device’s architecture, such as ARM, Tegra, Neon, and the like.
MX Player Custom Codec
MX Player Codec Pack contains ffmpeg library along with many other libraries which are required to insure that the player is working properly. If you download MX Player from Play Store, it will contain only the required libraries as per your device architecture. Sometimes you need to install Codec packs from Google Play Store (if MX Player ask to do so). But Custom Codec is additional which is a modified version of the ffmpeg library used in MX Player.
It supports DTS/Dolby (ac3) audio tracks. So, Codec packs from Play Store are mandatory if MX Player asks the user to install it. Custom Codec is optional if you want to play the videos with DTS & Dolby (AC3) audio tracks.

How to install MX Player Custom Codec
- Open MX Player App.
- Tab on the three-dot (located at the top right corner)
- You will find the following settings:
- Tab on Decoder option. You will see many settings like SW Audio, CPU Limit, and Color Format. Just scroll down to General Settings. You will find Custom Codec option there.
- Check what type of Custom Codec is needed. In my case, it’s ARMv7 Neon type Custom Codec.
- Tap on Custom Codec option and choose the ZIP file that you had downloaded.
In my case, I had downloaded AIO (All-in-one) pack.
- Once you select, it will ask you to tab on OK to restart the App.
- Do that and you are done!
When using the AIO Codec pack, MX Player will automatically install any necessary Codec from the ZIP file. Once the installation is complete, MX Player will restart with the newly installed Codec, allowing you to enjoy DTS audio on MX Player without any issues. You can now play any audio or video clip on MX Player without encountering any problems.
What to do when you update MX Player?
If MX Player is updated to a more recent version without any modifications to the ffmpeg library, there’s no need to be concerned about updating the Custom Codec. It will stay the same. If it is not compatible, MX Player will not load it.
Each time MX Player updates with a new version of the ffmpeg library, it will verify the loaded Custom Codec. If the Codec is outdated, an error message will be displayed:
“Custom Codec is out of date. Replace it with the new version”
In that situation, please download the latest version of the Custom Codec for MX Player and proceed with the update. Otherwise, maintain the current Codec without making any changes.
And that concludes our discussion on MX Player Custom Codec. If you encountered any problems with it, please feel free to leave a comment below.
