I'm a developer of diceplayer ( android hw accelerated media player )
I am working to add external player features to XBMC android.
It works on my SGS3 and Telechips Android TV box.

Local file / SMB share / HTTP remote play(I've tested with Vimeo HD) works well.
I'll release patch for XBMC and Diceplayer soon.





EDIT : you can use sub $50 cheap android tv stick that have TCC8925.

Very awesome!

Diceplayer is separate process. It is not affected by GPL.
Windows/Linux XBMC can launch external player app which is not GPL.
I just add some code for launching external android player app to XBMC.

Do you use the android method of launching applications using an intent? So this would work with any player that can handle the intent?

e.g.
Code:
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(movieurl))

It is basically generic. But some features are dependent on diceplayer like smb suppory.
