AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Ned Scott - 2013-12-31

As of the 12-29-13 (compiled on 12-30-13) nightly build (wiki), AMLogic devices are now supported for hardware video decoding in the normal XBMC for Android installs from our servers. This also means that there will be one build "to rule them all" when XBMC v13 comes out.

As always, be sure to backup your userdata folder (wiki) before using a nightly build.

Be sure to thank Davilla and Pivos for this new addition.

Thanks Ned, Davilla, XBMC Team and Pivos.

I encountered with some trouble while trying to test this on Ainol Hero 10 with CM10.1.
When starting a video I'm getting black screen but the audio is played.

Somehow the system decides to forbid XBMC root access.

Is a root access is a requirement for XBMC so it would able to recognize the Amlogic SoC properly ?

I'm currently not too thrilled to investigate (and post logs) as this Android fw is unstable and I will flash something else later.

There was an issue that should be resolved in next nightly hopefully.


AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Memphiz - 2014-01-01

Ainol Hero 10 has AML soc? Are you sure?


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - dhead - 2014-01-01

@Martijn

Thanks, I see amcodec disabled completely in todays nightly.

@Memphiz
Ainol Hero 10 I is Amlogic 8726-MX.
Ainol Hero II is ATM7029.


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Swifty - 2014-01-01

Does this support cover all Amlogic chips or just specific ones ?

I'm interested if it supports the 8726-M8 / M801/802?

So am I Smile


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Swifty - 2014-01-01

Hehe, I only started searching today, but I'm not even sure if these chips have surfaced into reality yet.. judging by your reply I guess they haven't Smile

So, I guess the currently supported chips are 8726-M1,M3 and M6/MX ?


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - davilla - 2014-01-01

oh they have... bruhahahahaa

Hinting at new hardware device(s) from Pivos to be released very soon now?

Hints there sounds like Ouya and GameStick might get some competition too


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Diet-Coke - 2014-01-02

The nightly build mentioned by Ned in the first post works great on my Xios DS!
I really enjoy using Airplay with my iPad! Thanks for that.

What might be something to fix is, that the Audio is slightly Offset by 0.225 sec.


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - VictorDUA - 2014-01-04

So from "12-29-13 (compiled on 12-30-13) nightly build" all the nightly builds supports AMLogic devices for hardware video decoding ?
Or its just one you mentioned ? Thanx.


RE: AMLogic hardware video decoding in nightly builds - Koying - 2014-01-04

It was disabled for a while due to conflicting issues.
I see it has now been re-enabled as of of today.
