Do I need a license key for rtMedia to work?

Nope! rtMedia Core is completely free and works straight out of the box- just install it like any other plugin and you are ready to go.

License keys are only applicable to our Premium themes and products. Each of them extends the rtMedia Core by adding functionality or styling. They are completely optional though, as rtMedia Core is pretty capable by itself.

Please refer to our License FAQ page if you have more questions.
