Hi, I noticed that many players have several ways to implement video playback, via codec and also via native android player, using the android MediaPlayer service.
Is it possible for Team Kodi to carry out this implementation?
Suggestion for mega compatibility with android

"mega compatibility"? What are you talking about exactly? Kodi supports and uses Google's "MediaCodec" API for Android:
"MediaCodec" is the only playback API/class that Google supports on Android, so Kodi should not need to support any other.
If hardware manufactuers don't support Google's MediaCodec API then you shouldn't support them by buying their devices.
