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

Whilst it's good news in some sense, I think it's bad news in others. I know gimli has put in a lot of hard work, but xbmc devs working for a sole manufacturer just feels like a bit of a conflict of interest and goes against the ethos of xbmc bing open source, as I would imagine that they have agreed with pivios not to work on other competitor platforms like mele so that the pivios can remain exclusive and sell lots of units.

Just feels like they have sold out to the highest bidder as it were, and have left the rest Of us a10 owners in the dark, which doesn't feel right especially when they have had other boxes like the mele etc donated, but have deliberately not developed for them and strung people along whilst all the time in the background secretly working on the pivios.

No doubt I'll probably get flamed and kicked from the forum for the comments, or the post will be deleted and that's fair enough As I had to express my view.

As a message to gimli & xbmc team, I mean no disrespect and I know you guys work hard and I do appreciate your hard work as I use xbmc on my pc, so please don't take my comments as a personal attack as they aren't meant to be, I am just expressing my feeling about the hardware acceleration being done for a sole manufacturer which I don't agree with for a open source app.

Reality is, that we only have leaked binaries from allwinner/softwinner for the a10 decoder. The library is crap and needs fixing from allwinner/softwinner. If you think your platform is important, go reverse the decoder library and fix the crap. I will not release anything untill i feel it's ready for public consumption. That is a fact, that doesn't have space in your paranoid brain.

Maybe you didn't get it. My personal work was porting to RaspberryPI and now the A10. You can image that code doesn't pop out of nothing. We are only a few developer on the ARM side with different focuses. The rest of the Team is focused on the PC side. Which means limited resources for ARM. Feel free to contribute patches and support ARM, otherwise don't cross my line, stay silent and let me have my fun. I could do the same like you now, play the little child and just delete what i have done so far for the A10.

Yes i take your message as personal attack. I do the development in my free time for fun. Idiots like you taking the fun out of it. You have no fucking clue whats going on behind the scenes. If we would sold our souls the android port wouldn't be public and we would get rich with it.
