Transfer MPEG-2 Licenses?

Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:12 am

I am troubleshooting a problem that I thought was due to low RAM and bought a Model B revision 2 (512MB).

Can I transfer my MPEG-2 and VC-1 licenses over to the new device somehow, or do I have to buy them again?

Unfortunately there is no way to disable the codecs on one pi to transfer to the other. The codes are specific to the serial number of the Pi. The closest you could ever get is to have 2 Pi with the same serial numbers which I think are limited to 1 million.
