Tablet [Q] Galaxy Tab 3 (GT-P5210) + MX Player + DTS Codec

Hey Guys

Just got a Galaxy Tab 3 (GT-P5210) and I'm struggling to get MX Player to play MKVs with DTS audio.

I've been to the "MX Player Custom Codec with DTS Support" thread and followed the instructions, but still no audio when playing back MKVs with DTS audio.

The codec I downloaded for my device was "x86-SSE3 [MD5:3dea0d71e4db915aab777316c697ef23]"

But, one thing I noted was that in step 6 it states:
"Navigate into the folder you put on your device. It will list all five library files. Press OK"

The zip I downloaded only had one file within it (libffmpeg.mx.so), so am I doing something wrong?

When I try play a movie with DTS audio, I get this message:




When I select the downloaded 'Custom Codec', the player restarts and then displays the following:





Any ideas what I'm missing guys?

guides outdated, you only need the one file.


did you remember to switch your audio playback over to software?

The settings I had selected at the time of original post were as follows:


What exactly do I need to select to enable DTS playback?

wrong settings... once you actually play the video, you can pick what decoder for audio and video in there. pick software audio and choose the relevant track.

Thanks for the reply, but something must be amiss somewhere with the way I have it configured as I tried that and still couldn't get it to work.

Anyhow, I've give up on MX Player for playing back network/SMB shares and paid for 'Archos Video Player' and also downloaded he 'Archos - All Codecs' (from m4rk3t) and everything seems to play fine now over my local network.

In fact, I cannot believe I haven't came across 'Archos Video Player' before.

It actually very good at video playback as you would expect, but it can also scrape movie and TV data from various online databases in much the same way as XBMC on PC can (but obviously not as configurable).

I'm just gutted didn't discover this a couple of years ago as the time wasted faffing around with various programs, different options and plenty of tweaking far outweighs the 3.99 spent on the 'Archos Video Player'.

In fact, my first PMP was an 'Archos 704 WiFi 80GB' (around 2008), which used to sell @ around 400 and I still cannot work out how they never managed to dominate the current market in such devices with them having a massive headstart on everyone else.

Shame, as they made some sturdy kit too.
