1 users found this article helpful


Starting with Parallels Remote Application Server  v19, you can redirect audio and video from an Azure Virtual Desktop host running Windows 10 or 11 Multi-session, Windows 10, or 11 Enterprise to Parallels Client for Windows.

For information on how to install Microsoft Teams on an Azure Virtual Desktop host, see here.

If you install AVD client version 1.2.2999 or later of will also install the multimedia redirection plugin (MsMmrDVCPlugin.dll) on the client device.


Note: Video feed is not available if Microsoft Teams is accessed as a published application using the Advanced client feature set.

We can set multi-media redirection for Azure Virtual Desktop for individual users or enforce it using a RAS Policy.
