Hi Richard, thats exactly what they did.

Now if only would could get a LC and CEF build with that. Do you think it
would be a lot of work to add the codec to LC player and a build of CEF to
go with it?

I got the licensing documents 2 years ago from MPEG-LA...... and had I
started to read them then...I would have just finished.

The good part is the MPEG-LA gives you 100,000 licenses free of charge, and
after that its also very cheap / user.
