The experience is no difference to your PC playing a file over the WAN link. If you play a 700MB DivX that is encoded at 786Kb/sec that is what you get – 700MB over the link using 3/4 of a meg.
Multi media takes planning over WAN, WAAS (Wide Area Application Services) technologies are really useful for this. I tested a Cisco WAAS (that’s pronounced “waz”) caching files with RDP over the the link and it worded great.
The MMR is less bandwidth than playing straight RDP but its not going to magically make DivX movies watchable on your dial modem 🙂
