Is .m3u8 still listed there? Also, isn't that a playlist file?

As far as I'm aware, @bleu8888 has said that .m3u8 isn't officially supported yet.
I was getting the same issue, I went back to version 1.7.38 and the problems were gone. So something's changed since that version.

There is nothing changed for .m3u8 on 1.7.39. This might be related to http user-agent which is changed on 1.7.39
If the server is configured to accept only old user-agent form, newer version will be failed unless old user-agent form is provided manually.
This link would be help if it is user-agent issue: https://sites.google.com/site/mxvpen/faq#TOC-Can-t-play-a-http-link-only-on-MX-Player.

On my zenfone 2 after about 2 seconds on hardware decoder the screen goes black. I don't have any custom codecs in use right now. I'm pretty much forced to use software decoder. Any idea on how to fix it?

Depends. What were you trying to play? The Mediainfo of the video would help.

Well I have a pointer with my remote control but it still wouldn't let me zoom/pan, I tried dragging everywhere, how should it function with a cursor? Seems quite the oversight to not allow pan/zoom without touch, hope it can be implemented? :)
I wouldn't call it an oversight per se; MX Player is a fairly old app that predates Android TVs by years. That being said, if something like a mouse was used, then perhaps panning can be done with wheel click and hold, and zoom done with wheel scrolling... I will have to let @bleu8888 answer that question.

Hi, I got this issue, I use xcam lg and I record a 720p video, 120fps, when I open the video with mx player I see the video at the normal speed, in real time, not in slow motion. when I open the video with the stock player I see the video in slow motion, how can I see the video in slow motion with mx player? Sorry about my English..

I use sony z1 c6903. After update to Android5.1.1 , when I use hardware decoder or hardware decoder+ to fast forward ,video is going to be stopped.
Hmm, that suggests they may have changed their media framework access, meaning @bleu8888 will need to take a look.

As in this version of the Zenfone 2? If so, then as it uses an Intel Atom, try downloading the x86 codec as well and see if that helps:
