The VIP cores will work with either the web or subscription edition of Quartus. You can evaluate the VIP cores in opencore plus evaluation (http://www.altera.com/literature/an/an320.pdf) mode without any license. With the hardware tethered to a PC, the cores will run indefinitely in evaluation mode and I think they will work for about an hour in untethered mode.

Can I buy license only for several cores from VIP or only VIP as a whole can be licensed?
