Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?

The reason i'm starting to think this way is that i don't understand how other hardware platforms like the Cubox came along later and yet have seem to have managed tangible results and have shown working demo's of the actual hardware running xbmc to some extent, which is something we have not seen with any A10 platform.

And that is exactly why Gimli is working behind closed doors and always have said to be careful with any conclusions. He always have said; It looks good now, but it can always end up in a total no-go, so be aware, don't get your hopes up.

- As long as the VPU library is not updated, made better
- As long as nobody can upgrade the video drivers, adding more and better modes
- As long as nobody can look into the sound driver for the issues Lundman mentioned

We might end up with a total no-go.

It is relatively easy to get XBMC running, but is it hard to do something usefull with it. Like I said the CPU and GPU are fine, but I guess you also want to watch some video material with it Wink

We all totally agree with you and some communication is going on. I will investigate if WE as a community can do anything to add some weight to the conversation.
