Application is available using Java web start technology via androidscreencast.jnlp.
Java security configuration
Due to Java security restriction policy, that was updated in java 7 and is restricted even more in java 8, we’re now not able to run JNLP without some security “hacks”.
To use JNLP, please follow this article: How can I configure the Exception Site List?
Currently, AndroidScreencast works directly with
adb input program through
ddmlib and uses functionality of:
adb input key
adb input tap
adb input swipe
Regarding this point, to use AndroidScreencast you need Smartphone running on Android with specific
adb input tap and
adb input swipe were introduced in Android 4.1.1.
So, right now AndroidScreencast support all Android versions equal or greater than Android 4.1.1.
Also, to run AndroidScreencast you will need adb installed (or you can use bundled in OS bundles adb).
Please refer to the project’s GitHub page for more detailed overview and specific instructions.
