The Flash URL Redirection feature redirects the SWF file from remote desktops to client devices. To allow these client devices to play Flash videos from a multicast or unicast stream, you must verify that the appropriate Adobe Flash Player is installed on the client devices. The clients also must have IP connectivity to the media source.

About this task

Note:

With Flash URL Redirection, the multicast or unicast stream is redirected to client devices that might be outside your organization's firewall. Your clients must have access to the Adobe Web server that hosts the SWF file that initiates the multicast or unicast streaming. If needed, configure your firewall to open the appropriate ports to allow client devices to access this server.

Procedure

Install Adobe Flash Player on your client devices.
