buying license keys.

Tue Dec 17, 2019 8:17 am

I remember buying license keys for the MPG2 and WVC1 hardware codecs. There are 2 more audio ones listed, but unavailable to purchase keys. Decode_DTS and Decode_DDP. Are these included or unavailable to buy keys for? I can play DTS movies fine

No, those HW codecs are not available AFAIK.

They aren't hardware codecs anyway, they are software running on the VPU (the VideoCore SIMD processor).
For most use cases it is easier to send the compressed DTS or Dolby Digital Plus stream over HDMI to an A/V receiver.
