I'm involved in the project and we don't have any assocation with Allwinner other than buying their chips.

I haven't read all the old post but from what I understand the main developer attempting this was saying the libraries wouldn't work and needed something else. Well since, another guy, empat0 came along, tried again and the same libraries were working and giving us HD playback. After that Allwinner compiled the same libraries with hard float support so they also work with the most current root file systems.

So I know everyone on here was pretty bitter about Allwinner not giving them exactly what they wanted but it seems they did provide something that would do the job. Just to clear, I dont think its right that they wont release the source and wont provide a library to match a standard acceleration interface but I think it should be noted that what they provided did work.

was hoping that these were armhf builds, but they are not, they are armel.

I think the packager is not yet setup right for the HF build so I've uploaded a tar of my binaries. By default this installs to the root, there is a script that will start xbmc up. The system setup is a little tricky right now. To get this working I had to use the older u-boot before the dram settings, which will be the default with miniand or similar image. You need a new kernel though, it was a staging but I think it got merged last week. So you need the latest kernel in sunxi-3.0 from and you need the atag memory hack on in the config.

Please let me know if this works for anyone.
