Slow/choppy Flash video on RDP using Windows Server 2008R2 SP1

I have a Windows Server 2008R2 SP1 running Remote Desktop Services and we are getting more requests from users to watch youtube type video.  This is a local RDS services so the speed is LAN speed.  Youtube or any Flash video is very slow and choppy, however WMV type video is ok, smooth and watchable.  Ive researched this issue for days and can see many others with this issue but no solutions, some suggestions include using a RDP accelerator application, others say its just not possible, but surely in 2013 watching video on RDS is possible?  Ive also looked at RemoteFX for RDS, but Im not sure if the server hardware is up to it (onboard video).

Has anyone found a solution to this problem without having to use third party software or RemoteFX?

No. The standard RDP protocol isn't built for streaming.

Unfortunately, it only gets worse if you not on the Same LAN.  You may want to consider third party add-ons such as Citrix, etc for a much better performance and experience.
