Specifies whether network buffering uses the default or a specified number of seconds.

This policy specifies that the default network buffering is used or specifies the number of seconds streaming media is buffered before it is played.

If Custom is selected on the Setting tab, the number of seconds, up to 60, that streaming media is buffered, must be specified. If Default is selected, the default is used and the number of seconds that is specified is ignored.

The Use default buffering and Buffer options on the Performance tab in the Player are not available.

When this policy is not configured or disabled, users can change the buffering options on the Performance tab.
