How to Screen-mirror?

You will need to set up an ADB command that sends output stream toy our player. We recommend using VLC Player. The initial limit of recording is 3 minutes, but by repeatedly inserting the command, you are forcing a loop that will keep the device recording for an extended period of time. The ADB command will need to know the location of your player in order to be able to connect the loop.  When installing VLC player, it will automatically be installed to C:\Program Files(x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe

  1. Open the command prompt in Windows. Make sure you open it in Admin Mode. Enter this command into the available field:


adb execout “while true; do screenrecord –bit-rate=8m –output-format=h264 –time-limit 180 -; done” | “C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe” demux h264 h264fps=60 clockjitter=0 networkcaching=100 soutmuxcaching=100 


This command will force the recording to loop every 3 minutes which will result in an uninterrupted recording session. Now you are ready to start recording those fantastic gameplay videos for your audience!
