Application fot streaming screen over network.
Designed for presentations, application send only changed frames. After connect you have to do something on phone, so new frames could be sent to clients. And it support up to 16 clients at the same time, but more clients causes more lags :)

Streaming MJPEG using multipart/x-mixed-replace server. Simply open http://device_ip:5554 in any web browser. You can also connect to 554 or 5554 port using streaming client (tested with vlc).

Application have no icon on desktop.
You can modify options inside Settings -> System -> Screencast
After modifying options you need to disconnect all clients and connect again.

Screencast daemon is closing itself after alst client is disconnected. Waiting for connection using systemd socket, no active processes spawning.

Problem: nichts stellt '' bereit, das vom zu installierenden screencast-0.3.0-10.19.1.jolla.armv7hl benötigt wird
Lösung 1: screencast-0.3.0-10.19.1.jolla.armv7hl nicht installieren
Lösung 2: screencast-0.3.0-10.19.1.jolla.armv7hl durch Ignorieren einiger Abhängigkeiten brechen

EDIT => updated code in CHUM

VERSION=" (Vanha Rauma)"
PRETTY_NAME="Sailfish OS (Vanha Rauma)"

SFOS same problem

Im relativly new to Sailfish and need to uninstall this app for to be able to update my phone, how do I uninstall, the app itself was great. Update, sorted, storeman helped :).

coderus's picture

You don't need to uninstall the application for update, you only need to update application to its latest version and it's will be fine to update the system

Amazing! I got it working with OBS too, so it would make streaming possible.

Any how, would it be possible to have a enable/disable toggle for the service? Similarly to bluetooth/wifi/etc. My mind would be more in rest knowing that connections to that port are rejected when I don't want this feature to be on. Even better if you can get the toggle button in the top drawer menu. Thanks!

Tanks ☺

I'll check tomorrow what is wrong with scripts

Worked. Thanks.

I'm unable to store username and password.
Great app.

raphendyr's picture

I noticed that you need to press the enter/next field -button. Unfocusing doesn't store the username or password, even though the field is left filled.

coderus's picture

New options applied after cast service restart only.

Excellent! Gives me an idea: a duplex app allowing to interact with the phone from a remote screen/mouse/keyboard. Kind of SailfishTeamViewer. Just dreaming, of course...

Thank you, really useful!

Uhhh thanks for the hint

This is exciting, and performance / delay is surprisingly good.

If we had the chance to have the mouse input forwarded from the PC / browser to the phone it would replace the missing VNC server.

Great, last version works for me on J1, although it takes some time to connect.
Fantastic! Well done, as usual :)

coderus's picture

Service send only changed frames, so after connect you need to do something on your phone))

The package does not install as it tries in its preinst to restart services that aren't there. 

After installing 0.1.0 and upgrading and multiple restarts I fail to connect to anything. The IP is granted missing the first number but still even after adding it it does not show anything but a timeout. Socket and Service are running. 

coderus's picture

Thanks, please try with new build

@coderus why usb address x.x.2.15 does not work? It is a software limitation or host/client routing problem?

coderus's picture

Everything works just fine

Markkyboy's picture

Will landscape view be supported at some point?

coderus's picture

Fixed in 0.2.3

Markkyboy's picture

Sweet, nicely and quickly done, thanks, works a treat.

I wondered about a pulley menu entry for "systemctl restart screencast.service"....?

coderus's picture

That's not possible, it requires root privileges

eatdirt's picture

Same hwre. The ip reported is buggy, it starts by 92 instead of 192 in my case. Looks like a real issue, even listening on 192.x.x.x:554 gives nothing.
