+ - XBMC Hardware-accelerated Android-build available

Submitted by repvik
repvik (96666) 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!)

So... http://mirrors.xbmc.org/test-builds/android/xbmc-20130118-d2c78f5-android-hwaccel-armeabi-v7a.apk . I've tested this build on Qualcomm S4, OMAP4, Exynos4, and Tegra3, all of them on CM10.1, and got accelerated video on all. Go get it :)"

I've tested it, and it looks great!"

repvik writes "Googling for "Miserable failure" or "failure" and pressing the "I'm feeling lucky" button has, until recently, unsurprisingly landed you upon the George W. Bush page. Apparently, Google fixed both of those last week . Apparently they've implemented an algorithm that helps against the googlebombing "attacks". Googling "failure" now lands you on this page."
