Want to buy codecs? Use the hardest way only!

Wed Jan 29, 2014 9:29 pm

Why buying a codecs is such a big problem?

Of course, if you from USA, UK, italy and if you are over 18 years old - you will be laugh on me, but:

I don't want to create a (fake?) paypal account, and "create" a credit card only because i want a raspberry pi codecs.

It's time to think about everyone. Why raspberry pi foundation cant start to cooperate with or ? It will be the easiest way for people that speak russian to get codecs (even for kids).

I will be waiting for official reply, thanks.

It isn't a big problem for the vast majority of people who buy them.

The Foundation, a UK based charity, doesn't have the time or money to link up with every payment system on the internet. So they have to use what is the most common worldwide, rather than payment companies in every single country of the world that buys Pi's.
