Windows Media Player "Playing in Receiver"

Ben Gray




I have a weird issue where when a user plays something in Windows Media Player, only the sound is played in Media Player on the Citrix desktop, and the video is played in an "ActiveMovie Window" which displays as a Citrix Receiver window on the local desktop.  I have attached a screenshot of the problem. 




Circled in blue appears to be running "locally" and not on the Citrix desktop.


If the ActiveMovie Window is closed, the sound continues to play in Windows Media Player on the Citrix desktop.  The issue also occurs with WMV files, so I don't think it's a codec issue.


I have tried prohibiting Windows Media Redirection but the problem persists.  Can anybody advise?
