I want to purchase the Fluendo DVD player using the Ubuntu Software Centre. If I reinstalled Ubuntu, would I have to purchase the software again?

No, you don't need to purchase it again.

If you want to install your previous purchages after reinstalling Ubuntu, just click on the File -> Reinstall Previous Purchases menu item in Software Center.

How does the Software Centre know the account? – Russell Mar 30 '11 at 21:26
You'll be prompted for your login details when you click it. – Alistair Buxton Mar 31 '11 at 1:10
