    With great support by ckoenig and agd5f on kernel and mesa side, this xbmc version will run perfectly on AMD OSS UVD hardware. Make sure to run mesa 10.1.1 in combination with an uptodate kernel.

      No DSD support yet. MPD has DSD over DoP support.

          I assume MPD is Music Player Daemon, but DSD and DoP? Heh... What a load of acronyms.

            Yeah MPD is Music Player Daemon.

            DSD (Direct Streaming Digital aka SACD quatlity and beyond) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Stream_Digital

            There are many new online stores offering DSD audio like:

            http://bluecoastrecords.com/
            http://www.superhirez.com/
            http://dsdfile.com/
            http://store.acousticsounds.com/
            and others.

            DoP (DSD over PCM) - http://dsd-guide.com/dop-open-standard

            Audiophile stuff.

                I miss the support for A10 and A20 Arm socks like Cubieboard / Cubietruck.

                Its suggested from debian website to be not problematic in the freedom dimention, like the supported hyped Raspberry Pi.

                Not to mention that also the specs are like 10x better in most aspects compared (Cubietruck).

                Maybe in Android it works now test it, but in linux its not working well sadly. While playing 720p videos over mpalyer works nearly perfect... some lag when pictures with much details are there.
