Did you have to make many system wide changes or was it editing and adding a few files to make it work?
By the way, would you mind if this post got publicity? I could get a lot of people to see it from a forum that has thousands of readers and is sorted by up/down "votes." I'm sure this will get a lot of interest and thus up votes to reach the front page and get a good number of people to see it.

Of course, I can wait until you have the finished project and then post it or post this and the finished project.
Also do you have a donation page? I've really been wanting this for a while and my only way to repay would be with a donation... I am however broke but my birthday is coming up and I might be able to scrap like $20 to donate.
some more publicity would always be great.
Actually we had to adapt some core components of the android platform (e.g. the surfaceflinger, which is used to compose the different surfaces together). The encoding/decoding is almost done with the original code (just minor changes).
It would be really great, if you could post this (or perhaps the esrlabs-post) on reddit, just to see if there is some interest in this. As we want to open-source this project, this would also be a good chance to get in touch with people who have a deep knowledge with OMX on nexus-s or galaxy nexus, as most of our problems seem to be in this context. We are hoping to be able to push out some more updates in the near future, but I think our current release is already interesting for people who want to experiment
thanks in advance!
