Weird.
I have MX Player Pro both on my Phone (Android 6) and my tablet (Android 5) with exactly the same parameters and Neon 64 codec pack. The same file with E-AC3 works fine on my phone but not on my tablet. The sound doesn't work. When I try to change the codec, it says that Armv8 Neon is required. Any idea ? With the previous version on my tablet, MX Player Pro worked fine.
How can I install the previous version of MX Player Pro ?

Have you tried the non-64bit Neon codec on your tablet?

If the custom codec is compiled with support for that particular codec, you shouldn't face any issues. If you are facing any issues, please collect a bug report right after playing the file and contact us at [email protected] along with the collected bug report and custom codec file so that we can assist you better.

same here Samsung s4 tablet .. tried everything above nothing worked
needs ARMv8 1.13

edit: what a trash app .. every once and a while they mess it up and spends hours to solve their mess
I am setting it up for my parents .. guess they whoever made this trash didn't consider that there will be old people using it.
switching to VLC it's free, looks better and they don't waste our time.

Trash talking gets you nowhere.
What would get you somewhere would be to keep a backup of the earlier build and just use that while things get sorted, something most of us already do because as you state on other words, sometimes updates of the app need custom codec updates also and you might be in the blind spot if you update before custom codec is released here.

For my particular case all is working. 64bit build on OP5T and aio on my mibox s.

By the way, this thread is about custom codec packs for MX Player, not the app itself.
I have no issue whatsoever with VLC, use it on every device/OS I use.

MX Player is a step ahead for me while using it for playing local files with subs. Something VLC has been buged for in a long time.
For casting stuff I use VLC wich works just fine, it's better for subs curiously.
To open streams I use both.

Fair and square.

It got me to VLC
Dont have time to keep up with custom codes and backups and moving them from one device to another. Specially if its updating by itself
Its an app .. not an equation

Unfair and circle

When everything is set up and working properly, MX is better than the VLC and well worthed of the effort to install custom codec. But sometimes it's not working properly and then VLC is better. Not everything in life is black and white (actually nothing is), so mix it up yourself

Sometimes fair, sometimes not and triangle
