Thanks! But is it the ARMv7 NEON or ARMv7?
It prompted me to install the ARMv7 NEON codec

I don't use any codec in my MS2. All videos can be played perfectly without any external MX Player codec.

Previously I didn't have to install any codec either.
However hardware decoding had problems with lots of the videos i download and had to use software decoding, which also had problems at times.
Anyway, on the 2nd latest update 1.6e it prompted me to install ARMv7 NEON codec before I could use it.
Today it was updated to 1.6f, shall try to fresh install it again and then see if it prompts me for the codec again.

Could it be a problem with the ROM I'm using?

NEON is a instruction set that CAN be present on ARM v7 but i don't know if MS2 processor supports... Have you tried to install both and see which one works better?

Oh I see, thanks for that info.
Um currently I've the codec pack for ARMv7 NEON installed but so far I've only viewed low-res videos and .mp4 formats only which probably wouldn't have a difference at all even without the codec packs.
I could test but any suggestions which format and res should I test with to see any difference (if any)?

When you open MX player, if the codecs are missing, it'll offer to download them, and will point to the right one.
