    Why H264 ?
    it's old, Please use H265 (smaller file size, good looking video)

    @fbifido: Thanks fbifido for your comment

    This is Jeroen van Eesteren from Microsoft. For the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), we are using H.264/AVC as this is what is most common in hardware today. H.265/HEVC is starting to become more available in hardware and is a development we are closely watching.

    How do I enable MSTSC to show the "Session Diagnostics" tool that the presenter is using to show latency and bandwidth when connecting to remote desktops? I have looked everywhere and Bing is no help with this.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm super excited for h.265. It still has to get worked out... without avx extensions is very taxing on the CPU. Mobile platforms would struggle a bit with it. Now once h.265 has hardware offloading in the GPU. That will be the time for h.265 to shine.

    Is this it Brian: https://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2013/11/04/remote-desktop-services-diagnostic-tool.aspx

    I don't have the ability to install so I can't verify (it honestly is most likely not what you are asking for, but maybe you will find it beneficial!)

    I'd be interested to see if there are improvements around manageability and documentation.  The TechNet documentation of the powershell cmdlets is atrocious.  cmdlet switches, examples, descriptions are just missing or outright wrong.  Additionally, management of broker via powershell is horrendous when you go with HA (DNS or HW load balanced).  Half the time neither broker responds to commands until you restart RDMS.  Furthermore, machines apparently randomly "drop" from existing collections.  Have a very large customer with a litany of issues that is rather embarrassing.


    In terms of features, I'd like to be able to aggregate multiple deployments into a single RD Web instance. Any news on that?
