    A little pedantic I know, but it's "GStreamer", not "G-Streamer".

    It must be really funny to buy something that you get for free too... If it would be at least a BluRay player i could accept it, but buying codecs must be a joke. I would try it if it would for free but nothing more.

    Bah. "Offers legal codecs" suggests that the other codecs (mplayer, VLC) are illegal. Why the hell would Phoronix imply something like that.

    Are unlicensed codecs legal in the country where the article was written ?

    Maybe "licensed" would be a more diplomatic term ?

    I guess a more precise phrase would be "unlicensed use of codecs" rather than "use of unlicensed codecs".

    Codecs don't violate patents, people violate patents

    And software patents violate common sense, so they get what they deserve :-P Sorry, couldn't resist, I actually like the idea of patents in general, but the US system is FUBAR!
