“Hi Guys, I’ve got some movies that have AC3 or DTS audio. When I play them on my Galaxy S8, the video plays smoothly, but it shows audio format is not supported. I tried both the stock video player and MX player, and there’s no sound from those videos. How can I play these videos on my S8? Can anyone help please? Thanks.”
