The Android Debug Bridge, or ADB for short, is a monstrously valuable apparatus for engineers that need to peruse framework logs, change settings, or robotize activities on their gadget. Google proposed to possibly give an order line interface when they made ADB, however toward the beginning of March of 2018, a designer constructed a device on top of ADB that lets you not just mirror the screen of your Android telephone yet additionally distantly control it from your PC. That device is called scrcpy, and its most recent update adds support for gadgets running Android 12.
For those of you who aren’t comfortable, scrcpy (another way to say “screen copy“ ) comprises of two parts: a worker application that is pushed to the Android gadget and a customer on the PC that speaks with the worker by means of an attachment over an ADB burrow. Your telephone’s screen is encoded as a h.264 video which is decoded and shown on your PC by the scrcpy customer. Console and mouse inputs are shipped off the worker and meant suitable contributions on the gadget. While scrcpy isn’t the lone controller/screen reflecting device out there, it’s outstanding amongst other on the grounds that it’s free, open source, adaptable, and quick.
Prior to the Android 12 update, scrcpy defaulted to making a “secure display” to help reflecting substance that was generally hindered. Nonetheless, Android 12 no longer permits an interaction with shell consents to make a protected showcase, causing scrcpy to promptly crash if the client endeavored to dispatch it’s anything but a gadget running Android 12. The fix is straightforward: Rebuild the Android worker so it’s anything but a non-secure showcase.
Another significant expansion to scrcpy is the capacity to utilize the video transfer as a webcam on Linux. The apparatus has added v4l2loopback (Video 4 Linux loopback) support, empowering the video transfer to be opened by V4L2-skilled programming like OBS. The video transfer can be uncovered as a webcam or potentially showed in a window.
Different highlights included scrcpy’s v1.18 update incorporate the capacity to bolt the video direction to the gadget’s underlying direction, power off the gadget when scrcpy is shut, new easy routes for the fourth and fifth catches, consequently resize the window to eliminate dark lines, and saving records in/sdcard/Download rather than/sdcard.
