I know AC3 is supposed to be built in, but I'm always getting that it's not supported. Is there a specific setting I need to check?

Hi
I'm using MX Player Pro on my Philips POS 9002 with Amplituner Pioneer VSX 422. I have problem with AC-3 sound Passthrough
DTS works
AC3 works but only in stereo.
When I use 1.9.8 codecs situation is the same
I don't know what could I do?
Best regards

But according to them, "With the latest update our App now supports AC3 audio by default (no custom codec needed). "

currently, audio pass-through works when there is no internal decoder is available.
In future versions, we will add an option to prefer audio passthrough over internal decoders.

Your page says: "With the latest update our App now supports AC3 audio by default (no custom codec needed). "

But on Mibox I get "AC3 is not supported". What do you suggest? MX Player Custom Codec?

AC3 audio on MX Player PRO on Android TV at Philips POS 9002 doesn't work in 5.1.
It detects dolby digital but plays only in 2.0 (on custom codecs and withouth them - passthrough)
DTS works like a charm but Dolby digital not.
MX Player suport...please do something with this issue.
Best regards

Any news on the problem we're still having? Not working with custom codecs
