EDIT: new here, just noticed this is in the S III section. Anyway, I was looking for a Note 2 solution and found this thread via Google, so hopefully this will help others like me.

Download the file; Winrar is giving me "file is corrupt" for a couple of the *.so files in the archive. Seems like this is the solution working for most people. Tried on two different machines and both give the 'file is corrupt' error on trying to unarchive.

Do you have a different link/archive?

Ok guys.

Now we solve problem decoding DTS. Now another question. How to make DTS ot DD passthrough, so player like this will send dts sound through HDMI.

Final idea is to play DTS and DD (AC3) on home cinema sistems (5.1 recivers).

Just curious what most people are doing out there in order to play their mkv videos with the very common DTS audio track (vs the less common AAC/MP3/etc audio tracks). Re-encoding phone-friendly versions with HandBrake; using an old app with DTS support; using a PAID app that paid the licensing fee (can't find one), or, something else...

EDIT: I'm going to keep a list here of players that are known to support DTS or not:

VLC Beta - (h/w 1080p decode works! - BEST option, but, the app must be sideloaded, since it shows as incompatible with the US S3 in the Play store. See Time_Zone's post below for the attached VLC apk. Thanks!)
BS Player - (s/w ONLY (eats battery): h/w mode always falls back to s/w mode, but dts is ok. 720p s/w == ok; 1080p s/w == CPU can't keep up; too choppy)
Rock Player - (s/w ONLY (eats battery): no DTS when in h/w video playback mode, and s/w playback is blocky crap. Also, the app fails to playback a video when sent a video intent to play from another app)

Video Player default - (Touchwiz, AOSP (CM10, AOKP, ...))
MX Player - (updated versions removed codec; google for old apk version)
Dice Player - (updated versions removed codec; google for old apk version (2.0.6), or try searching XDA for external plug-in support instead.)
Mobo Player

On my MK808 running finless 1.7:

- VLC buggy as hell, unsable;
- BS Player makes my unit restart, even with the ARMv7 support app installed;
- Rock Player Lite works like a charm, not sure if audio is 5.1 or not, I tend to think it is.
