ideally anything able to accelerate gstreamer (totem for example) should work in there. However the current design in dvdp makes it really hard, if not impossible, to make this possible in mainline. Thr gstreamer branch i have is just a teat. It works on h264 for me on desktop but haven't tried on panda, in theory it should work.
vissualizers uses standard gl so they won't work until ported.

There is some work done to get XBMC running using gstreamer. See this: http://www.madeo.co.uk/?p=783 But it is on Meego.

Thanks for the info! I'll provide feedback as soon as i got xbmc up, currently i'm moving my root fs to a usb harddisk hoping for better performance (all sd cards i tried seem to perform quite poor).

Compiled nicely with:
Unfortunatly the binary segfaults:
Edit: Christian667's fix to MatrixGLES.c solves this problem.

My main interest in using the XBMC on the pandaboard is to watch TV using the VNSI VDR plugin. The VDR runs like a charm, even watchable from other clients over wifi, but the fresh compiled pandaboard xbmc shows an uncloseable info dialog saying the plugin could not be loaded.
The log says:
Does anybody know what the bad status (4) means? Is it documented anywhere?
The same git clone works on a i386 machine
BTW native compiling needs 3h and 45 minutes

Try using ccache to speed up subsequent builds.

Better ask that question in the PVR forum, its probably not related to ARM

nice idea but the build is now installed, so I would like to prevent new building in the near future
I've really no idea what
Sorry you're right - wrong place

Great, my board has a defective HDMI port... I'll continue as soon as i get a new board...

You can get more recent sources if you mail amlogic asking for git access .
