enabling codecs issue
Hi All

I've been racking my brain trying to figure out why my codecs won't enable.

I've tried using xbian-config and then removing that and trying manually editing the config.txt via putty and adding via editing the config.txt in windows to no avail.

Please can anyone shed any light on this for me?

decode_WVC1=0x1111111

mpg2=disabled

xbian@xbian:~# /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd codec_enabled wvc1
wvc1=disabled

I've checked several times that the codes are the same as the ones that have been sent to me. Please help!!

RE: enabling codecs issue
Are you sure you ordered the license on the right pi serial number? Also are you 100% about the text after decode_MPG2= & decode_WVC1=

Yeah, the code "0x11111111" doesn't look right.
If you really got this code, you probably entered the wrong serial in the shop or something went wrong on the raspberrypi side. In the footer of the site is an email adress. You should write them a short email and ask for help.

No need because they're RPi specific. We would actually have to steal your RPi to use them Wink

Ahh fair enough. Won't surprise me if someone will be spoofing serials in the future somehow any ideas about this problem though?
