Android Screen View

Android Screen View UI

People have asked for a copy of the utility I wrote to view the attached Android device on the screen. It uses the built in screencap functionality of Android and the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) to grab and display a series of screenshots. It requires the Android SDK installed and does not require a rooted device.

The speed of update has to do with the screen resolution and image complexity. Simple screens (text and controls) update about twice a second. More complex screens (pictures, graphics, etc.) are slower than that.

For best results, turn on “Show Touches” under debug options.

It also supports saving a PNG to file.

There are a few pending features that I just haven’t gotten to. If you’d like to contribute let me know. Thanks to Stephen Ball for all his contributions already!

An app running on Android cannot take a screenshot without Root access.

You could connect 4 Android devices and modify this app to take screen shots from all 4 at once by specifying the specific devices via the call to ADB.

is it possible Display Android Screen from a pc by using tcp or udp ethernet by indy ?
