Hi, Mi Fans!
Today we're gonna learn how to import AC3 codec in MX Player. First what is AC3 codec? AC3  is a file extension for surround sound audio files used on DVDs format. The AC3 file format was created by Dolby Labs for use in a Dolby Digital audio on DVD, Blu-ray and other digital video formats. AC3 stands for Audio Coding 3.

Have you ever face this error on your device while playing videos via mx player?
Most of the user faced this because in mx player this format doesn’t support but we can use custom codec for mx player to view videos again with audio. First we need to know which custom codec our mx player supports here are the steps below to check which codec do we need.

  • Open MX Player - Click on three (dots) at the top of right side corner - Click on settings.

  • Click on Decoder - scroll down to bottom to see which custom codec we need to download.

    • We need “neon custom codec”. Open any browser - Search AC3 codec in google - Click on first link which is from XDA forum - Click on downloads.

    -You can download the codec file from here mx_neon (1).zip (5.22 MB, Downloads: 1220) or you can visit the download page

  • Choose “” - click on direct download, file will be downloaded into your internal memory under download if you're using chrome.

  • Now we need to import the neon codec in MX Player -  Open MX Player again - click on three dots at the top of right side corner - Click on settings.

  • Click on decoder - Scroll down to the bottom and click on custom codec.

  • Select the “” file which we have downloaded from XDA forum, app will be restarting to reload codec click on ok.
  • Now enjoy videos with audio

Note: If you install a latest version then you may have built in support for AC3 codec
