Use Session Recording Player to view, search, and bookmark recorded XenApp or XenDesktop sessions.

If sessions are recorded with the live playback feature enabled, you can view sessions that are in progress, with a delay of a few seconds, as well as sessions that are completed.

Sessions that have a longer duration or larger file size than the limits configured by your Session Recording administrator appear in more than one session file.

Note: A Session Recording administrator must grant users the right to access to recorded Server OS machine sessions. If you are denied access to viewing sessions, contact your Session Recording administrator.

When Session Recording Player is installed, the Session Recording administrator typically sets up a connection between the Session Recording Player and a Session Recording Server. If this connection is not set up, the first time you perform a search for files, you are prompted to set it up. Contact your Session Recording administrator for set up information.
