You can configure decoding for remote desktop and application sessions that use the VMware Blast display protocol.

Prerequisites

This feature requires Horizon Agent 7.0 or later.

Procedure

  1. Tap the Settings (gear) icon in the upper-right corner of the Horizon Client screen and tap VMware Blast.
  2. Select the H.264 check box to allow H.264 decoding, or deselect the H.264 check box to disable H.264 decoding.

    When the check box is selected, Horizon Client uses H.264 decoding if the agent supports H.264 software encoding. If the agent does not support H.264 software encoding, Horizon Client uses JPG/PNG decoding. When the check box is not selected, Horizon Client always use JPG/PNG decoding.

Results

Your changes take effect the next time a user connects to a remote desktop or application and selects the VMware Blast display protocol. Your changes do not affect existing VMware Blast sessions.
