It is not yet released. It is stable and functional on the shield and 
plays 1080i recordings.

It is not on the play store, but there is a download site. I will be 
writing instructions for the wiki on how to get it and install it.

People have used it successfully on other devices. I installed it on my 
phone, It works fine there but cannot be controlled with the touch 
screen, it needs a remote, so it is not really useful for a phone.
