Streaming Flash content directly from Adobe Media Server to client endpoints lowers the load on the datacenter ESXi host, removes the extra routing through the datacenter, and reduces the bandwidth required to simultaneously stream live video events to multiple client endpoints.
This feature is available when used with the correct version of the agent software. For View 6.0 and later releases, this feature is included in View Agent or Horizon Agent.
To use this feature, you must set up your Web page and the client devices. Client systems must meet certain software requirements:
This feature is supported for PCoIP only. This feature is not supported on ARM processors.
Client systems must have IP connectivity to the Adobe Web server that hosts the ShockWave File (SWF) 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.
Client systems must have the appropriate Flash plug-in installed.
Install the libexpat.so.1 file, or verify that this file is already installed.
Ensure that the file is installed in the /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib directory.
Install the libflashplayer.so file, or verify that this file is already installed.
Ensure that the file is installed in the appropriate Flash plug-in directory for your Linux operating system.
Install the wget program, or verify that the program file is already installed.
libffi.so.5 is required on Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 distributions to make Flash URL redirection work, but Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 distributions only have libffi.so.6 by default. You can work around this limitation by making a symbolic link between libffi.so.6 and libffi.so.5.
For a list of the remote desktop requirements for Flash URL redirection, and for instructions about how to configure a Web page to provide a multicast or unicast stream, see the Horizon documentation.
