> My understanding is that the XO-1.75 codec licensing was done as an add on
to the customers order.  That changed with the XO-4 as codec licensing was
purchased for all machines produced.  That is why vMeta should be available
to all XO-4 owners.

I have never been in any conversations with anyone that new the actual
licensing for the Adobe Flash binary.  The restrictions for it were
originally imposed by the requirement that vMeta licensing be purchased
because our custom version of flash uses the vMeta hardware decoding for
video playback.  Be aware that the Flash plugin for the XO-4 only works on
the XO-4 as it is NEON optimized and the XO-1.75 does not support those
instructions.  The flash plugin for the XO-1.75 is iWMMXt optimized which
will run on both platforms.
