Optimizing rendering of XBMC and aiding the port to ARM

by topfs2 for

XBMC, an award winning media center software, have recently been ported to ARM by mcgeagh, however its still very unusable due to slow rendering of the GUI. I would like to get a chance and really refactor parts of the GUI framework and optimize and alter alot of the rendering done in XBMC core to lighten the GPU / CPU load. If succeded this would make XBMC useable on slower hardware (beagleboard).
