scrcpy Now Available In Debian,ARCH,Gentoo,Mac,Windows.

scrcpy is a free and open source application that can be used to show an Android device's screen on a Linux, macOS or Windows desktop, allowing you to control it remotely. This can be done by connecting your Android device to a computer either via USB or wirelessly.


It should also be noted that scrcpy does not require root access in order to work.

Scrcpy is offered for the "testing and SID" Debian versions and will probably not be backported for older versions. There is however a SNAP build that will work on older Debian based os's and any os that supports snap offerings. Arch has a package in the AUR.For Gentoo, an Ebuild is available.

The projects site has all the detail you need to make the most of this great tool.

It focuses on:


  • lightness (native, displays only the device screen)
  • performance (30~60fps)
  • quality (1920×1080 or above)
  • low latency (35~70ms)
  • low startup time (~1 second to display the first image)
  • non-intrusiveness (nothing is left installed on the device)"

:cool:

What a cracking bit of software - this could be really handy for me for testing stuff on mobile!

They've even compiled the Windows binaries on the releases tab, so it's ready to run :).

Cheers for the heads up @Abarbarian!

Your not the only one who thinks it is neat. This is a response to my posting over at the other place.

It is a very cool application. I was playing around with it last month dominating mobile users on this billiards game. It is much easier to aim with a mouse than with fingers.
:lol:
