Any XBMC Media Player fans here? XBMC 12 Frodo is here. XBMC is still the best video player for my budget Asus Eee PC 1215B netbook. It is perfect for AMD Fusion APU E450 CPU and Radeon HD 6320 GPU. And XBMC team supports Android platform officially in XBMC 12.0 – Frodo. Of course, there are other new features like HD audio support, h.264 10bit (aka Hi10P) video software decoding for anime in this release too.

Great news, XBMC lovers (including me). You can enjoy your favourite XBMC media player on Android phone and tablet from now on. So far, only software decode of audio and video are supported until universal hardware decode is ready. But it is still okay to play low bit rate video smoothly. However, do take note that current XBMC skins have been designed for use on bigger screen like PC, TV. So navigation on phone with 720p HD display like Samsung Galaxy S III requires ‘special’ skill. But no worry, with XBMC opened source code, we should get a better and stale version at Google Play Store soon…

Yeah… I found the best video player for my Asus Eee PC 1215B netbook finally. My Asus Eee PC 1215B netbook is powered by AMD Fusion APU E450 CPU and Radeon HD 6320 GPU. It is just an entry level hardware. So it needs video player that optimised for its CPU and GPU. Can’t simple use any media player as the CPU is not powerful enough to handle 1080p Full HD videos. Luckily, I discovered media players that suitable for it. By the way, I usually watch TV series, movies, MV in MP4, MKV, RM and RMVB format. Most of them are 720p and some of them are 1080p. So these media players do not apply only for Asus Eee PC 1215B netbook but those netbook and HTPC that use AMD Fusion APU E450 CPU and Radeon HD 6320 GPU as well.
Yeah… VLC fans, it’s time for you to download and try out the latest and greatest VLC 2.0 Twoflower media player. VLC 2.0 Twoflower supports faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware.
