Known Limitations and Considerations


Multimedia The MPEG-4 file format, as defined by the MPEG-4 specification, contains MPEG-4 encoded video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)-encoded audio content. It typically uses the .mp4 extension. Windows Media Player does not support playback of the .mp4 file format. You can play back .mp4 media files in Windows Media Player when you install DirectShow-compatible MPEG-4 decoder packs. DirectShow-compatible MPEG-4 decoder packs include the Ligos LSX-MPEG Player and the EnvivioTV. Please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316992#34 for additional information. High-Definition (HD) video is not supported on t5545, t5725, t5735. Audio Cannot mute video over HP Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Multimedia and USB Enhancement No sound from USB headset on multimedia applications. Use USB headset for voice applications only. Video Moving Windows Media Player from one display to another while using RDP Span mode will cause video to freeze. Start Windows Media Player on the display you want to use. Playing videos from USB devices is not supported. Cannot mute video over HP RDP MMR. USB USB Redirection is not supported under Windows Terminal Server. If installed on Windows Terminal Server 2003, a mapped USB device will show up on all user sessions. This is a security consideration. HP Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Multimedia and USB Enhancement has control of the USB port on the thin client. No other application will have access to any USB ports unless Auto-Shared is

turned off after installation. Refer to the Configuration section, above. USB drive with EXT3 format may cause HP Virtual Client server to crash. USB keyboard causes device error when shared and unshared rapidly. Logitech QuickCam Communicate Deluxe causes session to terminates when redirected. This device is not supported.
