Awesome! Dolby is similar to pharmaceutical companies. Now that their AC-3 patent has expired, they've already roped everyone in to use their Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Perfect timing. Worse is HEVC/H.265, a compression manufacturers decided to use for UHD(4k) video which royalties are 5x higher than the previous format, capped at $25 million vs $5 million. I don't understand this. If the industry would back VP9, Google's open source compression, we wouldn't have so many hands in the pie ultimately leading to all us consumers getting screwed, paying top dollar for a 4k TV, and only being able to access one UHD source. Sometimes I wish the patent laws were more lenient. At least with pharmaceuticals, generics start being produced within 5 years or less, but they can't capitalize the first letter of the generic drug name. Maybe soon we'll see atmos.

Does the USA have access to this AC-3 update? I've installed MX Player on a new phone 2 days ago, and do not have AC-3 playback capabilities. I've seen screenshots of MX Player in the app store for other regions and it specifically states in the update notes about AC-3 support, but mine (USA) does not. I also notice that MX Player Pro is on sale in a lot of regions today, but it is still full price in the USA's Google Play store.

Still cannot play AC3 on my Nexus Player with this new update and custom codecs no longer work either. This update sucks! Does your built-in AC3 support X86?

AC-3 and EAC-3 not working with MX Player Pro

If you have video files with “AC-3” audio, you can now play it without using any third-party / unofficial custom codecs…!

There are no extra efforts required on your end. Just relaunch the app again with working internet. Once, MX Player configuration is updated on your device, it will automatically start working again…!

I am very sorry but MX Player Pro (latest version) is still unable to play videos with AC-3 or EAC-3 with the build in standard codec. I have stopped the App, cleared the cache, deleted the whole App und reinstalled it. But no way to play that videos.
With custom codecs it is working, but sometimes i get other problems not with audio but with video (H265).
Is it right, that MX Player should play videos with AC-3 and also with EAC-3 out of the box in the future ?
