You can just download the APK from the XBMC website and install it on the tab. It works fine on the G Pad, however unless your hooking it up to a TV via a dock or MHL adapter, your best sticking with a basic media player for playing files on the tab itself.

I can't post links yet but Google 'XBMX Android' and it's the first link!

Default XBMC - XAF Build

With a decent internet connection, XBMC works very well on the stock rom or with the Malladus custom rom.It doesn't work with any of the Kit Kat-based custom roms currently available. Which is why I can't use the latter.

The best results I've obtained have been with the XAF build of XBMC. This is the version that automatically uses MX Player to play back video. It's free from many of the issues that can affect playback using XBMC's native player.

1. You install MX Player (free version) from the Play Store and run it once. Go to settings/decoder and check H/W + (for smooth hardware acceleration).

2. You install the XAF build of XBMC, which used to be found here, thanks to a developer. I think the link still works.

3. Search any recent on-line guide to how to set up XBMC add-ons, especially from XBMChub and Xunity. What is available will amaze you.

Great, glad you're getting on ok with 12.3.

I should clarify: none of the XBMC Frodo builds, including 12.3, is hardware accelerated. For the smooth playback of all true HD video, you need that. That's why I use the XAF build, because it relies on MX player and its superb hardware acceleration. That combo can handle just about any type of streamed video.
