mpeg2video has broken in last version of MX Player Pro 1.9.5. It reports "This video format (mpeg2video) is not supported".

MX Player Pro 1.9.5 ARMv7 Neon was installed from Google Play.

MX player Pro build 1.9.5 dropped MPEG2 support?
Hello,
My MX Player Pro was updated to 1.9.5 from Play Store.
Since the update, I cannot play any MPEG2 videos.
Before the update all .mpg, .ts and .REC video files worked fine.
Now I get "This video format (mpeg2video) is not supported."
(well, mine is in finnish but it translates to that)

Is this a bug or planned issue?

My player is ARMv7 NEON on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 & Samsung Galaxy S7

Have you tried using the custom codec from the codecs thread?

No, not yet.
Actually, for years I have just been using MX Player without any problems and without knowing about any custom codecs.
All my files has been standard mpeg2, mpeg4 or h264 stuff so nothing custom about them at all.
All these including mpeg2 have been working fine for years now.

So maybe I will need to look in to those.

mpeg2video not supported
After upgrading MX Player to 1.9.6 at Samsung S5Neo the .ts files recorded at Synology from DVB-T cannot be played. It says "mpeg2video not supported". Same applies to the DVB-T live stream.

Use custom codec.

You also started a duplicate thread.

Ok, the custom codec works for me on mxplayer 1.9.6... But why was the support dropped?

Seems like the custom codec is the only way to go.
