MX Player is hands-down the most powerful media player available for Android at the moment. The player can play almost any video and audio format you throw at it, without breaking a sweat. That combined with features such as background playback, gesture controls, sleep timer, and many more, makes MX Player the absolute winner. However, the developers behind MX Player had to remove a couple of codecs from the app due to some legal restrictions.
As a result of the above, MX Player lost the ability to play media formats such as AC3, DTS, MLP, TrueHD, and a few more; at least officially. But guess what. You can manually download MX Player Codec files (both zip and APK files are available) and easily enable support for all the above-mentioned media formats.
