Multimedia redirection (MMR) Enabled

Determines whether MMR is enabled for client systems. MMR is a Microsoft DirectShow filter that forwards multimedia data from specific codecs on View desktops directly through a TCP socket to the client system. The data is then decoded directly on the client system, where it is played. The default value is disabled.

MMR does not work correctly if the client system's video display hardware does not have overlay support. Client systems may have insufficient resources to handle local multimedia decoding.
