Enable multi-media acceleration

Specifies if multimedia redirection (MMR) is enabled on the client. MMR is a Microsoft DirectShow filter that forwards multimedia data from specific codecs on the remote system directly through a TCP socket to the client. The data is then decoded directly on the client, where it is played. Administrators can disable MMR if the client has insufficient resources to handle local multimedia decoding.

Note: MMR will not work correctly if the View Client video display hardware does not have overlay support. MMR policy does not apply to Offline Desktop sessions.

Supported on: VMware View Client
