repvik writes: Yesterday, Ricardo Cerqueira posted this on Google+:
"As I mentioned in a comment for another post, +XBMC is currently undergoing extensive work for native video acceleration in Android. I was about to post my own build (which works on the Nexus Q's OMAP4), when I noticed they have just posted a build based on the same patchset (it's theirs, after all :) Great job, guys!)

I've tested it, and it looks great!
