The issue that was mentioned was cloned/frozen VM images that you could spawn to increase scalability. In that case, you would prepare/install an image just once, freeze it, and then launch a new one whenever you need it. Ideally you'd have the plugin installed that first time only, but then all cloned instances would fall out of the license agreement, as they'd actually be different machines with the plugin reinstalled rather than downloaded on the fly. Downloading the plugin for each new image that is spawned as it unfreezes would be a problem, as 1) the image wouldn't be ready right away, and 2) any problem in the download process would make the machine useless with respect to H.264.
