SharedScreen - share your screen with ease

#1 Post by HSDev » Tue May 23, 2017 1:04 pm

SharedScreen is a minimalistic screen sharing tool which makes it easier than ever before to share your screen to one or even many people at the same time. Your viewers no longer need any additional download. You can run the application and start sharing within one click. No registration or hidden fees!

Any roadmap for more features? Having used a lot of screen sharing tools, one that jumps to mind is recording the shared screen. There are a lot of screen sharing programs and there a lot of screen recording programs but it would be ideal if you could do both.

On that topic, the help file mentions Pingo. Is this just sending sequential PNG files? If so, maybe there's a way to just cache those images locally?

We have an internal road map and we are always working and doing experiments before we are sure what is gonna be added next. The upcoming update will bring QR code support and a new language.
For the future there are many ideas such as integrated file sharing, actual remote features and many more.

The additional option to create a video file from your session is possible and added into our to-do list. SharedScreen uses JPEG compression to show even complex images without generating huge image files.

The idea that the viewers can simply use an URL appealed to me so much, that I've asked them how come the host must download a whole program.
I want to give them credit for giving me a quick response that explained it.
They said the host uses a lot more resources. Since the program is free, the host's own system supplies the resources.
With that said, they'll consider it for the future!

Due the fact that you can access the content from any (allowed) browser requires a lot of traffic.
One example: One server and one viewer for an hour sharing screen on standard quality uses the bandwith of around 1,1GB.
As lwc said we consider working on a web host application in the future depending on the feedback and downloads we get.

As this is one of those programs that requires two people to test, I've been waiting on my testing partner to dig into this. Hopefully I can change that in the weeks ahead and get you some feedback.

You can even try this with a single computer or use your phone/ tablet to view your own screen.

Version 1.5
I saw your update and decided it was time to give it a shot. I got the following error:

I'm using Win7x86. Is this a 64-bit only program?
