The XBMCANDROID.com Team Presents...

STABLE RELEASE OF THE XAF CUSTOM BUILD OF XBMC FOR ANDROID


This release is basically the first stable end user friendly version of XBMC for Android that should work great on pretty much any Android powered device. Since XBMC still doesn't support hardware accelerated video decoding on most devices, support for an external video player is included in this release, that way you'll still be able to enjoy a flawless XBMC experience since the external video player itself does support hardware accelerated video decoding.

You'll also find that a bunch of customizations have been made in order to make the whole XBMC experience more enjoyable for the end user, some user experience and some functionality related.

Hopefully this will change the public perception of XBMC just being a media player, and most people will realize that it's much more: a media platform that interfaces with online streaming video content, bringing online streaming technology directly to your favourite devices in an easy to navigate VOD system with endless possibilities.

Step 2: Launch and exit the MX Player Free application at least once before continuing.

This is the XBMC for Android but, basically, instead of use the internal video player, it uses an external app (such as MX Player) to play videos, etc, also has lots of features.

It's working really good on my GTab 7+, thanks! I hope you can fix the samba issue, I would love to stream the library from my HTPC.

Question
So is it only MX Player Free that doesn't support samba streams, or is it all external players? I basically only use xbmc for samba streams on my local network since all my media is on my FreeNas. I use nfs to conect with computers and my htpc, but I couldn't figure out how to do nas with android xbmc. If samba is broken for everything, would it work over nas, if that's even an option? I'm running the rc from xbmc.org right now so just trying to decide if its worth installing this one instead since it will be a pain since I assume this uses different signing keys. Anyways, keep up the great work xbmc guys. Being able to run xbmc on all the things is awesome!

For smb to work with mx player, XBMC should present the file as a http stream, which it does not. So smb whith external player does not work.
You better check xbmc builds with libstagefright enabled. This is the way to go.
As a workaround of you have root then mount the shares on local folders using cifs manager, then the build from this thread should work.
