Whats the difference between this app and "screen mirroing " of chromecast apk

Differences are :
  • Chromecast mirroring is only one of the features of this app (you can also mirror to many other kind of target devices, broadcast to Internet, and record)
  • Official Chromecast mirroring gives better latency
  • It's works for some devices for which Chromecast mirroring is not possible with Google's app
  • You can choose to stream with internal audio OR microphone audio OR both
  • You can change many settings such framerate, bitrate, and resolution to tweak quality
  • Software encoding provides many live video effects
  • probably few other differences but I think I told you most important ;)

VLC

VLC crashes after I change the screen orientation. How to fix this?

Everything is ok. I was using old version of VLC, after updating it works properly. Sorry.

Galaxy s5 audio issues

I am able to stream my screen to xbmc and chrome. However, no matter what I do I am unable to get the internal audio to stream. I am using Moar Rom 6.2 lolipop galaxy s5. Is there something I could do to get this app to work with audio?

It might be because of the ROM you are using, but I am not sure.
I'll try to check if this is a problem related to this device, but it would be great to know if it is the same with Samsung's Lollipop ROM...

I can only get it to have Su access like 1 out of 8 times. But Su actually grants access evertime it just seems the app doesn't know. Then when it does work I can't get it to actually stream to twitch. It just says "Mirroring is paused" when I press play. Then if I press stop it automatically goes back to the opening screen giving me instructions for if i'm not rooted or Android 5.0.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition Stock ROM Rooted.

Sorry for the wait,

I am able to stream to google with some lagg, but i cant do the local desktop recording.

1.-I can open the app.
2.- I select record on local file option.
3.- I start the recording.

-its recording well if i don't start the camera app on the desktop.
If I do that it crashes or doesn't save the video or saves but doesn't play the full video.

My version is 2.1.5 .

Ok you seem to have a recent version but you seem to have a problem with use of camera.
If it ask you to send a bug report when it crashes, please send it. I'll do my best to fix it.
Thanks.

Hi Sloosh,

In the quest of helping you fix this problem , I will send all the details of the device . My device android version is 4.1.2 and its on a samsung camera s3 . For what i saw , I needed the code to run it on root that you guys provided(start service.sh) .I think the problem lands on the class you used for the recording on the application . Once it starts the screen recording and the camera app at the same time there could be a conflict on the class or the resources.

*Updated my app

I did all the process and at the end when i open the camera app it looks like it works well. When i see the video the video is just damaged , it doesn't play the full video and stops each 3 seconds . I have to play it again and again and the camera part doesn't show .

I would like to help you more but the Screen Stream app is driving me crazy . With all the bugs and the publicity it takes me like 5 minutes to run the application . If i want to use it again the next day, I have to run startservice.sh again.

Hi, I'm having issues with the audio, if I have it set to internal and enable it to play on my device as well it will echo really bad on the stream (using it to stream on Twitch). Its not so bad if I don't have it play on my device, but I really like to have it play on my phone as well when playing a game.

Camera uses a lot of things, it might also be an opengl issue because it uses opengl for video effects.
So if I understand well now the camera works well, but you have troubles with recording a good video file, is it correct ?
If so, can you please let me know the settings you are using ?
Have you tried to enable hardware encoding option ? It should be disabled by default with your device because it is running Android 4.1, this is a quite old Android version now and causes some troubles...

What do you mean by it will "echo really bad on the stream" ? Do you mean it cuts audio or produces scratches on the stream side ?

On the stream side, it sounds like its playing the audio twice, one is faint but you can for sure hear it. It almost sounds like it my phones microphone picking it up, but I do not have it set to mic/internal (mixed), I only have it set to Internal and then check the "keep on phone" option. If I do not have that option selected it works fine.

    Hi there.
    I got a Galaxy Note 4 running 4.4.4. After some experiments, I found that the only hardware encoder that works seems to be "MPEG4 [Hardare 4.1]". Is that normal? Is there somewhere I can enable some sort of error logging to see what's going on when it tries the different hardware encoder?
    Also, for local file recording, it only allows H264, is it possible to allow MPEG4 as well (so that I can use the hardware encoder)?
    Thanks for this great app again.

    Hi,
    I'll see if I can add MPEG4 in addition to H264 for file recording, but I would recommend to upgrade your Galaxy Note 4 to Lollipop as the last update (2.1.6) works great with the best hardware encoding method with such device on Lollipop.

    Thanks. I did see the changelog about Note 4. However at the moment I cannot move onto Lollipop yet because of a few security changes (selinux and the like).
    Thank you very much for look into this though.
    The new update available today includes MPEG4 format for file recording.
    I hope it can fill your needs, but please keep in mind you will have far better performances if you update to Lollipop.
    Regards.
