Audio and Video Playback Redirection Configuration

Published: January 8, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 7.0 and Windows Server 2008 R2 support improved media playback experience by efficiently transporting audio-based and video-based multimedia in a compressed format within the RDP protocol. This feature enables users to experience smooth, reliable playback of multimedia video content played back through Windows Media Player. If the client supports audio and video playback redirection, it will receive the original compressed multimedia stream from the server and decode it locally for display.

Note: Audio and video playback requires less network bandwidth because the data sent over the network is compressed video instead of a series of bitmap images.
