Administrators can use the Windows media fallback prevention policy setting to specify the methods that will be attempted to deliver streamed content to users.
By default, this setting is not configured. When the setting is set to Not Confgured, the behavior is the same as Play all content.
To configure this setting, choose one of the following options:
- Play all content. Attempt client-side content fetching, then Windows Media Redirection. If unsuccessful, play content on the server.
- Play all content only on client. Attempt client-side fetching, then Windows Media Redirection. If unsuccessful, the content does not play.
- Play only client-accessible content on client. Attempt only client-side fetching. If unsuccessful, the content does not play.
When the content does not play, the error message "Company has blocked video because of lack of resources" displays in the player window (for a default duration of 5 seconds).
The duration of this error message can be customized with the following registry key on the VDA. If the registry entry does not exist, the duration defaults to 5 seconds.
