Yes it is, but my mentioning AC3 really isn't the point. The point here is that MX Player, as good as it is, requires you to download additional codecs in order to be able to view files. With MX Player, unless I downloaded a modified neon file that supported AC3 audio, I could not watch a DVD rip I created on my device.
VLC doesn't have that issue. It "just works" without having to download anything additional, and it has support for .MOV files as well.
VLC is able to include the patented AC3 codec, but MX Player cannot. I guess that because VLC is free and MX has a paid option. Dolby want to make sure that anyone does not making money from their codec.
