AllCast to gain Android to Chrome home screen mirroring (video)


AllCast users will soon be able to easily mirror their Android device’s screen on a desktop thanks to an update from the app’s lead developer Koushik “Koush” Dutta. The media streaming software already features Chrome integration, letting users broadcast media to desktops and this appears to be the next step of its evolution.

This all became possible after a hack by Koush modified the app’s mirroring code to useH.264 instead of WebRTC/VP8. Unlike current offerings that are pretty much limited to the Nexus 5, this new update will bring full home screen mirroring support to most modern handsets. Dutta didn’t gave a specific release date for the update, but did say that it will be coming soon. In the meantime, here’s a brief look at the app in action.
