Record videos from your phone screen to your computer

The application taps into the phone’s settings and captures the video feed, without interfering with its functions.

Android ScreenCast allows you to modify several options, in order to obtain the desired results. By default, both the pictures and video are saved in their original format, however, you may choose a different size for the video.
The pictures can be saved in PNG, JPG or BMP format, in a custom location and with the desired name. Similarly, you can rename the videos and save them in the selected folder. You may modify the bitrate and audio stream, if more are available. Any change is applied with each new snapshot or video.
