I made a blog entry based on this. I've been using this build for a while now and it made my mk802 III complete :)

Includes a video (showing a 1080p movie running) and a few screenshot, a few of those below:

I ended up fixing the latest xbmc to support external players (MX Player). I updated the first post with a binary and explanations (check the first post!).

This is probably the bext xbmc build out there for all mk802 owners, probably works on all clones as well (tronsmart, cloudnet go, etc...) basically everything running on Rockchip or Allwinner:
it's the latest and greatest xbmc, which means libstagefright support for those who want it, but also with MX player et. al support, for those who still don't see any improvement with libstagefright.

This was lots of work (not the code change itself, but all the stuff I had to learn to make it happen), so your feedback (success or failure on your device, etc...) is really appreciated. and if it works for you, please spread the word, thanks! ( I'll maintain this only if I see there is interest outside of my own little world for such a fix :p )

(I have not actually tested this on my mk802 III yet, only on a clone of the mk802IV.)
