Well, I can think of a few reasons, but they are far too negative. There must be a logical reason, right?

This is pure tecnical, we focus on using OpenMAX on Android. Allwinner doesn't have working OpenMAX components, as far as i know.

Fantastic, then not all is lost:

The question is how open AllWinner willing to be with open source community? Given time and resource, Any SoC company will build a driver and given binary code to XBMC and get things hock up. The true value between this collaboration is to produce a open sourced driver running on hardware provide by Allwinner, I believe XBMC team could put up a OpenMax driver pretty quick, Gimli has already showcased a half cooked program before.

How hard will Allwinner take to open up their VPU or DSP hardware tech specification and let the open source community do the job?

I don't think so.

I don´t understand that. Does that mean that it is possible to use xbmc menü and fantastic layout/design and for playback it is possible to use an external player like mx player / vlc or something else? that could be a good workaround to get xbmc running on android devices or am i wrong?


RE: Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ? - Krankdroid - 2012-08-18

workaround yes.

good one. no


however. i am ready to accept anything at this point to keep using the XBMC build, and wait to see what solution comes up down the line

Well to bad. I had high hopes for openelec for allwiner but it seams that they dont know the potential of opensource comunity.

They should remove "winner" from their company name, they've just lost a opportunity for them to do more business.
If you're also frustrated with their lies, sending them a mail makes you feel a lot better Smile

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot, to actively try and deceive open source community devs that are trying to help work out issue is a sure way to obtain banishment to the dark regions of epic fail.

They must be retards if they cannot see the potential boost that they could have in sales by having a popular multimedia platform like XBMC behind them...


Lets move on to the next cheap processor... AMLogic?

Hi Eric,

We are still working with the community on XBMC. The hardware acceleration is still under process. That's all I can share at this moment.

Best regards,
Eva


.......Almost bought the MK802II, yesterday. But is it wise to do with this whole thing around XBMC falling away Sad

I wonder if Gimli can share what the issues with libve where.

They must smoke crack. A typical marketing company. Telling users lies just to buy their shit.

And the guys with the hardware are the ones on the losing end as always...

There is no way to make a exception for the android version?
