    Default XBMC on Playbook?

    Does anyone think at some point if this NDK ever gets released that we could port over XBMC? I use the media capabilities a lot with the hdmi output and having that piece of software could be amazing. Thoughts?

    RIM have begun porting XBMC to Playbook:

    Doesn't compile yet.

    RIM is porting xbmc? Why does this not sound right to me? Hopefully it's as good as it should be. Xbmc is the biggest reason why I would want an iPad.

    RIM hired some guys to port opensource apps. They are also porting several other projects.

    Xbmc on iOS requires jailbreak and doesn't work on the newer devices (like Apple TV 3) because of this.

    I am an XBMC lover, but to be honest, it sucks on the ipad

    Looks like nothing has been done for 3 months. Is it in a compilable state?

    I wonder if anyone can point me to some leads where I restart the porting of XBMC for PB. Currently I have been able to rebuild XBMC apk app for Android using the link "https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master/docs/README.android" here. However after I converted the BAR file and run it on PB, I got an exception due to "native library unsupported".
    I guess I need some help or notes on how to port the whole XBMC for QNX, etc.
    Thanks...
