Default MX Player Custom Codec with DTS Support

Custom Codec is updated to v1.7.25
Since there is no changes in ffmpeg source code, Custom Codec v1.7.25 is fully compatible with MX Player v1.7.26
(Codecs released before v1.7.25 are not compatible with the latest MX-Player 1.7.26)
About this project:
DTS is a type of audio codec (normally has 5.1 - 7.1 channels) which is owned and copy righted by DTS Inc. You can use dts pass through without any copy right issue. But, in mobile it needs to be down sampled to 2 channels which is a conversion process and it needs to the permission from DTS Inc.They are not ready to have a deal with the software players. So, dts playback support is dropped from the official MX-Player.

Simply if your video has dts audio it wont play any audio. Only video will be played.

So, I have re-compiled the ffmpeg sources with dts audio support for our MX-Player lovers.....!!!
Announcement:
Now this project is migrated to XDA-DevDB. You can download the codec files from download tab. For mobile users I will provide the direct links in this post as well. You can follow the project by clicking on Follow button or Click here. The followers will get the notification whenever the new version is updated.
See the Second Post for Instructions & Download Links
For the latest test builds (MX Player v1.7.28.20140626 or Newer) Check Post #3

Quote:
Note:
Many users complaining that the custom codec is not working with latest version. The codec pack is updated whenever the developer updates the ffmpeg source. If you update the player, Then you should update the Custom codec too. The Old codecs may or may not work properly with the latest version. Before reporting any bugs make sure that you have the latest version of custom codec.


Quote:
Note:
  • Till the MX Player v1.7.15a the custom ffmpeg was used as a shared library. That's why we had 5 *.mx.so files. But, from v1.7.16 the developer moved to a static library. So that from now onwards we will have only one library file (i.e, libffmpeg.mx.so)]
  • Some users have reported that they are getting *.bin file instead of *.zip file. It seems that Chrome browser (Android) has some issues in downloading from ubuntu one...!. If you are getting *.bin file just rename to *.zip. Alternatively you can use different browser for downloading.


If you have any problem regarding codec, you can report here....!!
Any Problem or feature request regarding player, pls report in the official MX-Player forum here
If you want to post the attachments on your thread please hyperlink to this thread instead of posting direct download links

Custom Codec for MX Player v1.7.28.20140626

From 1.7.29 onwards, custom codec file naming is about to be changed as followings:
libffmpeg.mx.so.CPUID.Version


Eg: libffmpeg.mx.so.neon.1.7.29

Kindly note that codec version and MX Player version may not be same. Sometimes MX Player will be upgraded without upgrading codec. The minimum required version will be directly forced by the player itself.

As usual I uploading the codec on a .zip container. But, there is no need to unzip any more.

MX Player itself extract codec file from .zip file when loading codec. If the zip file contains multiple codecs MX Player will load correct codec file automatically from it's name...!!

Note:
File name format is implemented to check the compatibility. So, don't change the name of the library file inside the zip file. It will break the compatibility of codec & will lead to failure.


This codec is just for test buid & it may contain bugs. So, it's not advised to use mx player test version / custom codec for daily usage.
