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?
