I’ve found little notes in admin guide and became so sad (((.

Why Wyse announce full windows vista support in all ads, but in fact…

MP3 and WMA files are not supported on Windows Vista with any of the thin
client platforms.
AVI support (audio: MP3, WMA, AC3; video: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4,
part 2) is provided via the availability of corresponding decoders on the
connecting thin client (however, .avi files that contain MPEG4 or H.264 are
not redirected on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2). If client side
decoders are not available, the functionality will seamlessly fallback to
compression of raw video as JPEG images on the server and transmission to
client with synchronized audio. This fallback functionality is not supported on
Windows Vista as MP3 and WMA files are not supported on Vista.
MPEG-2 support on Windows XPe thin clients requires that a client side
decoder is installed.
Wyse TCX Multimedia for XenApp is supported for Wyse thin clients by
clearing the Enable Sound check box on an ICA connection. In order to
disable Wyse TCX Multimedia for XenApp and use the native RAVE (Speed
Screen) technology, check the Enable Sound check box on an ICA
connection.
Playback of H.264 video requires a multiplexer installed where Wyse TCX
Suite Server software is installed.
Multicast support for VMware View requires that the virtual desktop terminal
server or Xen App server be in a multicast enabled subnet.
