Using another android device as client
Mar 27, 2018
@rom1v Thank you. Considering basic functionality of scrcpy, I think my app is ready but not perfect. This is my first app. I want you to take a look at my app and provide me with suggestions. So if you are okay with it please provide me with an email or any other medium to send the apk. And if possible kindly suggest some "wordplay" for the app name.
Sure. Publish the code somewhere and I'll take a look when I have some time
@rom1v Thank you very much. I agree with you. But I have made small changes to AdbCrypto.java file of adblib. I will see if I can isolate those changes. Meanwhile one issue that I came upon while using the app is, I am unable to open items in gallery and file manager of remote device. When I click on an image or video thumbnail, instead of opening, they are being selected. Please enlighten me if I am missing something.
@tailcode Hey, I just tested, that works great
Is it possible to quit from the client? (I only see the remote fullscreen, so I can't control the client device)
Also, if the devices have a different aspect ratio (typically if I force the navbar to be displayed), the video aspect-ratio is not preserved.
I think there is a similar problem with VLC: if I click quickly while a video is playing, it should display the control bar, but it does not.
@rom1v Thank you very much for the feedback.
Yes, when you exit from the app, socket pipe breaks and server terminates. Cleaning of remote device is handled in server code.
You mean input events are not working ? I have tested on few devices and they worked for me. Please let me know what device you are using and I will try to test on it if I can find it in my circle.
One hurdle I have encountered on a Samsung device is, it doesn't have curl or wget binaries in it and the server cannot be downloaded to it by the current implementation. I don't know if all samsung devices are so. I have worked on a new method to push server to remote device which I am testing. I will push them to git once I think it is ready.
