With this patch you will be able to use hardware audio decoding on the Allwinner A10 chip.
This patch was tried on the Cubieboard development board using MXPlayer and it was able to play 1080P files flawlessly, no lag at all!

Here is the link to the patch 

Download on your device and install. After installation open “Applications menu” execute “Patch”, submit (simply press a button under executed application). AC3/DTS hardware audio decoding should work now. Try it with MXPlayer, be sure to enable HW decoding under sound.

What the patch actually does:

libswa1.so file is copied to /system/lib folder

I had some troubles with my stock opkg configuration file, because every time I tried the command opgk update it would always return  that the architecture was wrong. So I found this configiration for ramips in a Spanish forum and the opkg started to work again :)

Here is the code:

src/gz barrier_breaker http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ramips/packages
dest root /
dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
arch all 100
arch ramips 200
arch rt305x 300
arch ramips_24kec 400
