Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
@j1nx : Oh okay thank you for clearing that up, basically the decoding chip is not embedded in the GPU unlike desktop AMD/Nvidia/Intel GPUs. Thought it was inside the Mali-400 ! Didn't know that was also called a VPU though, that's kind of ambiguous since it's also a synonym to GPU.

Edit :

In this case the VPU is part of the chipset but not part of the GPU like it is on PC GPU's for instance. The VPU only handles hardware accelerated decoding of videos nothing else. The Broadcom CrystalHD card you can install in a PC would be another example of a VPU (which is also supported by XBMC).

Sorry missed your post ! Okay that confirms what I just said up there, thanks Smile
