latest xbmc for android (with native hw accel not the external player hack as with amlogic) supports
  • Tegra-3: Ouya and most recent tablets
  • Snapdragon: most phones
  • Exynos4: odroid and most samsung phones
  • OMAP: Archos devices and some phones.

freescale's i.MX6Q is not supported.

So if your HD rips are on a SMB share (like most people do), the issues with xbmc and the gk802:
  • too much lag with internal player (My 720p rips all have more than 6Mbps).
  • xbmc doesn't know how to invoke external player for files on sbm shares.
  • xbmc internal player doesn't have hw accel for freescale's i.MX6Q
:(

the gk802 is a fun device but for xbmc (as of today), you're better off with a odroid-u2 or an raspberry-pi.

i dont get it.. xmbc is running smooth here. Playing 1080p movies wireless from my zyxel nsa310 nas without problems... through upnp

i'm still using old gk802 firmware 1.65.3
i dont know if its working on 1.65.4 (i cant update)

for me, xmbc for this stick is perfect.

if you install this version (above in this topic) xmbc wil play movies with mxplayer.

If you edit a file, you can let xmbc play movies with bsplayer, read here : viewtopic.php?f=54&t=1314

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=UPnP you need a upnp server on your nas, something like twonky server...

i'm testing xbmc with esternal player ( dice player and mx player )
it's work un DNLA(UPNP source) but no scrapers :/

In SMB mode doesnsn't work with external player ... video not found video ...

Actually ( in my home ) xbmc does not very very cool ( i have atv2 JB and it's work great ... )
the video up to 576 doesn't work fine ( jerk ) ... :/

i think actually there are no issu for xbmc and HD ( 720p and up ) solution in wifi/rj45 with a nas ... Only appleTV2 arriving to decode 1080/720p in wifi .... :/

No way i had a raspberry pi since release and xbmc is so slow compared to xbmc on android on the gk802, ok so videos get sent to another player but still... so much better than openelec on my pi

I have the model b pi with 512MB of ram and I don't think the xbmc UI is that slow. But I do agree the xbmc UI is so slick and fast on the gk802. On the other hand,
  • CEC just works on the Pi.
  • DTS/DD pass-through just works on the Pi.
  • streaming from smb just works on the Pi.
  • updating the kernel is dead simple on the Pi (if you want to add driver for your remote-control, camera, etc.)

So while the gk802 has a much more powerful CPU, the Pi got much much better xbmc support.

So right now at my place:
  • the Pi is handling xbmc duties.
  • the gk802 adds "smart" to the dumb tv and provide gaming for the kids (young and old :) )
  • the (to be ordered) CuBox will handle NAS duties.

I'm able to play 1080p videos fine with xmbc via upnp and externals players.
I'm able to play 1080p videos from my NAS via a mounted NFS share with xbmc and MXPlayer fine (unfortunately not with BSPlayer), too.
But the internal player with H/W decoding on the GK802 would be very nice ;)

And I haven't heard from any where (other than geeklying) that "anyone is working on xbmc-on-i.mx6q".

libstagefright is hopefully the answer that many of you have been waiting for: universal support for hardware video decoding in XBMC

Oh! and who will implement OpenMAX components (vpu and veu hw integration) for the i.MX6Q? geekbuying?

If there's no vpu and veu OpenMAX components on the i.MX6Q then we'll have libstagefright... with software decoder and renderer.
