    NB: Check Wikipedia to find if you have S1/S2/S3/S4 Snapdragon.

  • Hummingbird → Cortex-A8/NEON
  • Exynos → Cortex-A9
  • OMAP3 → Cortex-A8/NEON

  • and so on...
Features :
  • Gingerbread & ICS support

  • Headset detection
  • Almost all media formats *should* be working
  • Streaming support
  • Remember that this is still WIP
Download :

DEPRECATED, SEE nightlies.videolan.org INSTEAD !


→ Enable Unknown sources in order to install it
Stability tips :
  • Disable Hardware Acceleration
  • If researching within the whole memory takes too much time, set a fixed folder in settings instead.

If you built this for Google TV, and allowed DTS decoding (Logitech doesn't support DTS), then I would love you forever! Otherwise this looks promising!

That is because you don't have Cortex-A8/NEON as stated in OP. It works on ICS.

I will see if I can port this to other devices.
