To explain why I can't call the file 1.8.6.1
Is because MX player expects the Name 1.8.6 or it won't load the codec.
AKA those errors on my first upload people where having.

[EDIT]Just to clarify: I did see your previous report about v1.8.6.1 and alternatives (thank you BTW) and the subsequent commit for x86, as well as a different reply about a problem with the name, but nothing explaining why 1.8.6 is filed under 1.8.6.1.

As far as my understanding from the commits, it doesn't affects the devices except x86. If the developer put 1.8.6.1 as requirement & everyone has to redownload the codecs unnecessarily. So, they might have kept 1.8.6.

in simple words for any non x86 devices, custom codec 1.8.6 = custom codec 1.8.6.1

Thanks for the explanation, and for the codec.

With the codec MX Player is in a unique class of plays-all-media apps the likes of which I've only seen on PCs in VLC or with K-lite.

Thank you so much for this
And just some newbie question here. Apparently mine uses armv7 neon codec, and i know this custom codec lets me play ac3 files. So just wondering does other non ac3 files has diffrence in quality when played in newest updated codec from store? Just wondering if i should keep 2 codecs if it has diffrence in quality for other files, so i can change when playing ac3 file.. thank you

this custom codec also lets you play DTS files, while Google Play version does not.

You do not need any additional codecs for that. MX Player already supports that.
