IGEL Linux Features that require the Multimedia Codec-Pack

Some features in IGEL Linux require the separately available Multimedia Codec-Pack. These codecs enable multimedia redirection in remote sessions, faster rendering of remote screen contents, and multimedia playback in the browser and media player.

IGEL Zero clients contain the Multimedia Codec Pack by default.

On selected IGEL devices hardware video acceleration is available.

Here is an overview of the affected IGEL setup pages and parameters:
