MX Player officially gets AC-3 Audio Support

Recent good news from xdadevelopers: MX Player is very happy to announce that we are now adding “AC-3″audio support in our latest version of the app (i.e. MX Player v1.8.17 & MX Player Pro v1.8.16) in most of the regions. If you have video files with “AC-3” audio, you can now play it without using any third-party / unofficial custom codecs…! There are no extra efforts required on your end. Just relaunch the app again with working internet. Once, MX Player configuration is updated on your device, it will automatically start working again…!
