Default MX Player Custom Codec with DTS Support

Custom Codec is updated to v1.7.29..
Since, There is no changes in ffmpeg the custom codec v1.7.29 will remain compatible with MX Player v1.7.30

(The Codec loading method has been changed. Please Read the Instructions before report..!!)

About this project:
DTS is a type of audio codec which is owned and pattern righted by DTS Inc. You can use dts pass through without any copy right issue. But, most of the mobile don't have native DTS audio decoders. So, it needs to be downsampled to 2 channels which is a conversion process and it needs to the license from DTS Inc. But, They are not ready to have a deal with the software players. So, dts playback support is dropped from the official MX-Player due to pattern right claim by DTS Inc..

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 New Instructions & Download Links for Stable Version v1.7.29

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

Note:
The custom codec file name is standardised for compatibility checking.
So, Don't change the file name inside the zip file. Else it will break the compatibility & won't be loaded by the player..!!!
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. So MX Player will check the compatibility when it's updated & Will unload automatically along with a "Obsolete Codec" warning if the custom codec update is required. So, You you can continue to use the codec till MX Player warns about the Obsolete Codec.
As usual I uploading the codec on a .zip container. But, there is no need to unzip any more. Anyhow still you can load the unzipped codec, if the name matches with the above pattern...
If you have multiple codecs in a single zip file, MX Player will automatically load the right codec for your device..
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...!!

KTSamy
