This Fling has been integrated, and the functionality is now available in VMware Horizon 8 2106 Enterprise.


VMware Horizon Session Recording allows administrators of a VMware Horizon environment to record their users activity in their Blast Extreme virtual desktop and application sessions. Recordings are uploaded from the agent devices to the central web service, for central storage and ease of viewing.

The Session Recordings are stored as MP4 files for watching via the web console or downloading to play in a local player.

Please note, Version 2.0.8 and higher are not compatible with previous versions, if you are currently using 1.x, you must uninstall and redeploy the agent and webservice.
