ServerOS: 2008R2

ClientOS: Win7

Receiver: 4.5


I am unable to get windows media redirection to work.

I am launching a webpage, within a published desktop, with an embedded MP4, and the video is getting rendered on the server, causing high CPU.

I have launched the same site on the client machine and the video can be played.


I have ensured that these policies are set to "allowed":

  • Windows Media redirection
  • Windows Media client-side content fetching
  • Optimization for Windows Media multimedia redirection over WAN

HDX Monitor gives me this:

  • Virtual channel state: Idle
  • Bandwidth threshold: 10.24 Kbps
  • Virtual channel priority: Medium

Any advice on testing?

Does anyone have a URL they know to work for Windows Media Redirection, so I can rule out the specific site?

After further investigation, I have found that legacy mode is in use.

Does this block WMR?
