Configure HTTP Proxy

Requirements: Windows Media Player for Windows XP and later.

Location: User Configuration\Windows Components\Windows Media Player\Networking\

Specifies the HTTP proxy settings for Windows Media Player.

This policy specifies the proxy settings for the HTTP protocol. When this policy is enabled, a proxy type (Autodetect, Custom, or Use browser proxy settings) must be selected. Autodetect means that the proxy settings are automatically detected. Custom means that unique proxy settings are used. Use browser proxy settings means that the proxy settings of the browser are used.

If the Custom proxy type is selected, the rest of the options on the Setting tab must be specified because no default settings are used for the proxy. The options are ignored if Autodetect or Browser is selected.

The Configure button on the Network tab in the Player is not available for the HTTP protocol and the proxy cannot be configured. If the Hide Network Tab policy is also enabled, the entire Network tab is hidden.

This policy is ignored if the Streaming Media Protocols policy is enabled and HTTP is not selected.

When this policy is disabled, the HTTP proxy server cannot be used and the user cannot configure the HTTP proxy.

When this policy is not configured, users can configure the HTTP proxy settings.
