Hardware Video Acceleration on IGEL OS

Question

Does my hardware with IGEL OS offer video acceleration?

Answer

Open Application Launcher > About to look up your product ID and device type:

In version 5.07.100 and newer and version 10.01.100 and newer, IGEL OS offers hardware video acceleration for

  • Media Player
  • Citrix Multimedia Redirection
  • RDP Multimedia Redirection (TSMF and EVOR)
  • VMware Horizon Multimedia Redirection

on selected devices. This allows playing back HD video with a maximum of 20% CPU usage.

The Multimedia Codec Pack (MMCP) is required for this feature if your IGEL OS version is lower than 11.01.100.
