Raspberry Pi Lands MPEG-2 and VC-1 Decoding

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is responding to the numerous requests from Pi owners to provide an access to an MPEG-2 license. The Foundation has finally provided an avenue for individual owners to purchase a single owner license at a nominal price.

You’ll be able to purchase an MPEG-2 decode license which will be tied to your Raspberry Pi’s unique serial number. This will allow you to play MPEG-2 material from XBMC and omxplayer, which hasn’t been an available feature before now.
