View Full Version : MX Player xvid

I couldn't work out why one of my tablets insisted on transcoding a file using MX Player. There wasn't an entry for Xvid so I copied the parameters from another device so it now looks as follows. I don't know what mp3_relaxed is though! :D

<Format id="avi" format="avi" encode="0">
<Codec id="mpeg4" />
<Codec id="mp3" />
<Codec id="mpeg4_xvid" />
<Codec id="ac3" />
<Codec id="mp2" />
<Codec id="mp3_relaxed" />

MX Player was happy with this and played the video natively.

I'm not sure if this type of feedback is useful and whether you would use it for future release?

Thank you - yes, this is great and I'll add this to the official device profile as well. The "mp3_relaxed" means that MP3 audio with any bitrate will be played natively, not only those with well-defined bitrates (such as 128k).
