You’ll want to download and install a test build marked “hwaccel” from January 18th or later from XBMC in order to test out the latest features on your device. I took a recent build for a spin on my HTC One X with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor, and had no problems playing HD video stored on my device, streaming from a shared network drive, or streaming over the internet.
Your results may vary – these are still test builds which may be buggy and which may not work on all devices.
