Right, that is what I was going to suggest.

One of us should fix the pulseaudio issue on master and send in a patch.
probably going to be you. that's a long ways away from my skill level. :-)
Anyone know how to get the wireless and HW accelerated video playback to
work with the pandaboard and Yocto? maybe a different image?
meta-ti list is probably going to be the place to find this out. Or at least find clues. Unfortunately, it seems that there is not a pandaboard expert in the Yocto house.

The meta-ti layer has been extracted from Angstrom, so there seem to be plenty dependencies directly on OE. Often when building more hardware-specific recipies, these dependencies crop up. So Yocto on Pandaboard is definitely still a work in progress.

I have gotten video to work by porting the libav recipe from OE. Happy to send it to you if you want to try. There is no evidence to suggest this is hardware-accellerated. HOWEVER, it does play 2Mbps video without stuttering. So from my perspective, whether it's hw accellerated is not important :)
I would say it's hardware accelerated because video under Ubuntu is like a slide show. 2-3 sections between frames. I don't think HW acceleration was working there either.

The downside is that AUDIO is working hardly at all. This is my current challenge, and I'll definitely report progress to the meta-ti list.
I need to test, but on Ubuntu 12.04 with the OMAP4 extras, I had audio only working via HDMI audio. I'll test to see what happens on Yocto.
