I have a 3.25gb 1080p mkv and I have problem playing using mx player pro.

I have tried to switch to different mode - HW, HW+ or SW, video is fine but I got no sound at all.

If I use a different player like BS Player it works perfectly.

Note: I'm using Nexus 5 w/4.4.2 kitkat + Mx player pro 1.7.28 Armv7 Neon

Can you post the mediainfo of the file?
If it has dts audio track then you have to use custom codec.

thanks, it's dts.

I have downloaded the custom codec and now it's fine.

However, may I ask why this codec didn't include in mx player in the first place?

Also the one from the google play doesn't work. I had to use this:

The detailed answer is in the first post of the custom codec thread...!!!

In short DTS people is not ready to negotiate with SW players. So, to avoid copyright issues it's dropped from the official version.
