Can you specify your issue in detail along with the steps to reproduce the issue?
Without knowing the issue, It will be very difficult to provide the proper solution.

It will better if you can collect a bug report immediately after the issue & share here.

Maybe a stupid question but is the codec imported to MX Player so I can remove the file on my device afterwards?

You do have to keep it. No idea what they're talking about.

I download a free AC3-sample yesterday. Couldn't play it at first, then I imported the custom codec and it played fine. I then deleted the codec from my phone and it still played fine.

As of April 2017, MX Player no longer needs custom codec for AC3. So, that proves nothing -- playing an AC3 file without custom codec on your Android device... I don't know why your AC3 file didn't play, but you probably did something wrong?

Delete your custom codec and then try playing a DTS file? That is what still needs custom codec.

I'd really like to get an MX player version i could simply have installed with an auto-updates enabled, but without the chance of the next update breaking the codec compatibility over and over again.

This custom codec thing being necessary, while seemingly a minor inconvenience, becomes really annoying while paired with auto updates.

The only difference between the free and "Pro" (paid) is the lack of ads. Neither version plays DTS files without custom codec. On the Google Play store page for the Pro version they say there's no other functional difference between the two and urge you to try the free version before buying the Pro version.

MX Player Pro

This is the Ad-Free version of MX Player.

There is no functional limitations in free version
. Kindly try the free version first before purchasing the Pro version.

Exactly. Very easy for anyone to try. Did you?

The burden is actually on YOU to prove that, not me. I'm not the one saying you can delete the custom codec file and play DTS files. I'm keeping it and not wasting time. If you can prove it and provide screenshots, etc. then have at it.

"See above" doesn't prove a thing. The guy played an AC3 file, which easily plays without custom codec (as of April 2017). It's DTS files which still can't play without custom codec file.
