PCoIP & Flash - 15.Sep.2010 11:30:03 PM

Hi, all -

What kind of success have you folks out there had with PCoIP and Flash? I've tested Wyse TCX, HP RGS and now PCoIP and all seem to have their shortcomings when it comes to multimedia redirection and/or handling or Flash. I've been testing an Samsung NC240 Teradici-based terminal with PCoIP. The video is smooth and looks great. The audio is smooth and sounds great.

But it's out of sync. The audio and video aren't quite aligned and it's definitely enough to be noticeable.

I'm struggling with what this means for us. As a college, if we want to use this for lab replacement or instructor stations, good quality multimedia is pretty necessary which might mean just sticking with fat clients. On the other hand, perhaps staff desktops should be our primary target, although it seems like we lose massive opportunity by ignoring labs.

Other than Flash, PCoIP was impressive. VERY smooth and other than the Flash sync issue, you couldn't tell it was remote. 100 Mbps network connection. Good stuff.

Anyone have thoughts on the whole Flash issue?

All -

I wanted to provide you with an update. Teradici ran across this message posting and contacted me about our Flash audio/video synchronization problem. The company provided me with a driver update, but that was unsuccessful. They have indicated that they are aware of this issue for a subset of their customers and are actively pursuing a solution.

Once I have a solution in-hand, I'll report back!

Good news, everybody!

Late last week, Teradici supplied me with new firmware and a new audio driver. I'm not sure if these new software pieces are yet generally available, so contact Teradici support if you need them.

My problem was that audio and video were about 1 second or so out of sync. It doesn't sound that serious, but it would have been a tough sell in a general rollout.

The new software almost 100% fixed the problem. It's not PERFECT, but it's so close that I'm declaring victory on this particular issue.
