Thanks Simon

Simon this is great news.
I have questions for you.
Are you compiling all the code on the BPi using gcc?  What code base did you start with.
Is the source code you are building posted someplace? I have been curious about this stuff myself.

   Good! thanks for sharing

I've compiled it using git://github.com/rellla/xbmca10.git repo directly onboard.
btw I'm trougleshooting some issues with vlc. now with mplayer it plays smooth, but cannot start it fullscreen into xbmc. it flickers and xbmc stays ontop even the playercorefactory is correctly set...
I'll let you know soon.

Add that to the xbmc forum they may be able to help on that, it sounds familiar.

Thanks, I will be watching this thread.

Be patient some days and I'll able to share an image. Not perfect at all' but at least a starting point

Just a thought anyway.

How does it work ?

I've no idea if those modules would work on Android too.
Actually I've got XBMC 12.2 working but the native player wont work for HD videos. Airplay and the rest is ok.
I've recompiled vlc but it goes in core dump playing videos in HD. I've opened a thread on VLC forum too:


Then, mplayer works well, no issues at all! But cannot use it on XBMC as external player. A strange behavior: on XBMC it flickers a lot. I've posted for help on XBMC forum, but no help for now:


VLC as external player works well, but hangs as written previous.
