I have a question/problem with the Adobe Flash Player configuration-file called "mms.cfg".
I want to disable hardware-acceleration.
Therefore I have created a file "mms.cfg" with the following content:
As described here, I did open the website "https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html#main_Find_Flash_Player_version_type_and_capabilities__Flas..._"
, scrolled down to the tree-example, right clicked it and opened the settings.
The dialog says, that hardware-acceleration is still being used!?
Have a look at the following screenshot:
It seems, that the configuration through "mms.cfg" doesn't work as expected.
How do I disable hardware-accelleration?
Windows 7 x64 – Flash Player 27 ActiveX
Server 2008r2 – Flash Player 27 ActiveX
Server 2016 – Build in Flash Player
The mms.cfg setting will override any preferences in the UI, but it does not update the UI.
I already thought about that. Thank you for the confirmation!
No problem. Out of curiosity, are you disabling hardware acceleration to work around a problem that we should be looking into?
I am preparing the settings for Flash-Player running on our Citrix XenApp Terminal-Servers.
The Citrix XenApp-Hosts (Server 2008r2, Server 2016) are virtual machines running on Citrix XenServer Hypervisor.
The physical machines do not have any special GPU's or something like that.
As far as I know it is best practice to generally disable all hardware-acceleration features in this case.
Like mentioned here, otherwise a software emulated GPU is beeing used for things like this, which could result in a significant degradation of user experience.
You could give me a recommendation, if this is not true in case of Adobe Flash Player.
No, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks!
