Raspbmc for Raspberry Pi will work with MPEG-2 and VC-1 codecs


- Advertisement -

We just told you that you can now buy an MPEG-2 and VC-1 licence for the Raspberry Pi, and the developer of Raspbmc has said it will work with Raspbmc.


This is what was just posted:

Will this work out of the box in Raspbmc?

Yes — after your purchase, you will be given line entries for config.txt. When you add this, XBMC’s omxplayer will start playing the codecs that you have paid for.

Does this mean Raspbmc will get PVR support?

Yes — Raspbmc will soon have PVR support

Are additional codecs coming?

I can’t comment on whether they’re coming, but if you check the VLLs, there’s more than meets the eye!

Have you ordered one? Let us know if you get yours and what you do with it.
