Hi guys. Halfway through watching episode 93 of all about android right at the point you mention xbmc (which I work on). And feel the need to point out the build you mentioned was not actually released by team xbmc but was a hacked up version done by a third party web site to use an external player for all the media. In this case mxplayer.

Team xbmc does have some proper builds with in built hardware decoding for videos in testing currently. And if you also follow cyanogenmod on Google plus you will see that they also have these proper builds working on the nexus q as well with cm 10.1 playing back videos nicely like you mentioned you might like too try.

So while we are not quite ready for full public deployment on android and in the play store yet we are getting closer. Best too take your time and do things properly than rush out rubbish

Thanks for reading Jezz_X
