HTML5 multimedia offload in a terminal server solution has been a feature that a lot of people have been waiting for a long time to get. Users that are watching video content on YouTube or other media services are using many resources on your workloads. I have seen sizeable XenApp server only being able to have five sessions running because the users were accessing video content online.
We already have HTML5 Multimedia Offload
The new HTML5 Multimedia Offload solution
Conclusion and Limitations
I have tested this feature and it works very well. But there are some limitations. This solution is made for Internet Explorer, so this feature is only available for Windows. It is only supported in Internet Explorer 11, so you need have the newest version of Internet Explorer. You can enable HTML5 Multimedia Offload with a Citrix policy in Citrix Studio.
