Default Android TV support

Hi,

This topic request is a placeholder for the newly announced Android TV that Google announced at Google I/O (June 26th 2014)

I would love MX Player to have support for Android TV in whereby I could use MX Player on future Android TV set-top box devices such as Blu-Ray players to be able to play local file content.

Be ready for Android TV if it kicks off well

If it's a Google-supported device with Play Store access, then MX is likely to support it. The real question is what sort of hardware decoding support will it have, and how powerful of a processor for software decoding?

I've tested newly announced Android TV using Android emulator. It works well so far.

Is it just me or the fire tv hardware looks so much like the development hardware for android tv? And even the cards from the settings on fire tv look much alike to the ones in android tv?

Coincidence or what is going on?
