Audio redirection

Determines how audio information is channelled when played on the remote desktop. When this property is enabled, the available settings are:

* Disable Audio - no audio
* Play in VM (needed for VoIP USB support) - audio plays within the remote desktop (requires a shared USB audio device to provide sound on the client)
* Redirect to client - audio is redirected to the client. This is the default mode.

Note: This property only applies to RDP audio — audio that is redirected via MMR will play in the client.

Supported on: VMware View Client
