Configure MMS Proxy

Requirements: Windows Media Player for Windows XP and later.

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

Specifies the MMS proxy settings for Windows Media Player.

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

If the Custom proxy type is selected, the rest of the options on the Setting tab must be specified; otherwise, the default settings are used. The options are ignored if Autodetect is selected.

The Configure button on the Network tab in the Player is not available and the protocol 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 Multicast is not selected.

When this policy is disabled, the MMS proxy server cannot be used and users cannot configure the MMS proxy settings.

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