Choppy Audio Silverlight Over RDP04 Mar 2011
Following my recent post regarding Silverlight, unfortunately I have hit disaster. When the audio starts, it sounds choppy with a double-echo or reverb. In short it is unusable. All other audio works fine, even on the same webpage, but as soon as you try and listen to a Silverlight widget it sounds terrible.
Googling “silverlight rdp choppy” in desperation has not filled me with confidence, there are a number of posts including:
- Has anyone else ran into a problem where if you use a Silverlight app over Remote Desktop and it plays a WMA or MP3 file using MediaElement, the sound is choppy?
It is possible that upgrading to Windows Server 2008 would resolve this issue; although there are issues I believe in connecting to the latest RDP version using rdesktop.
I did find this advice from Microsoft, the Microsoft RDP Client was the only sound card available, but I followed the advice anyway to no avail.
What I simply do not understand is why all other audio works perfectly via RDP, except Silverlight, especially given the fact that Silverlight and RDP are Microsoft products.
Any suggestions gratefully received!
