This page demonstrates the HTML5 video redirection feature released with Citrix Virtual Apps/XenDesktop 7.12. This functionality provides similar benefits to the HDX Flash/Windows Media redirection in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops.
The HTML5 video redirection feature works with Citrix Workspace app and Citrix Receiver with support for multimedia redirection protocol (RAVE). For further information, visit Citrix Product Documentation.
While the video is playing, a noticeable “lag” or “jump” in the video window when you move the browser around on the screen or scrolling the browser indicates that the video is being redirected.
Another way to is to look at the CPU consumption on the VDA, before and after you start playing the video. When the video is redirected to the client, there will not be a significant increase in the CPU consumption on the VDA.
