Project and Record Your WP8 Screen to your PC with Open Source Client

A couple of months ago, Microsoft released Project My Screen for Windows Phone devices. This app, as its name suggests, lets you project the screen of your WP device onto an external display, such as your PC monitor. Requiring you to connect the devices with a USB cable, this was offered as a solution for those who were not able to do the same wirelessly. Project My Screen is a welcomed app for anyone who wants to view their phone’s screen on a larger display, but it didn’t offer a very simple way of recording.

XDA Forum Member hks25258 has managed to reverse engineer the project and integrate a video recording function to make it much easier for WP8 users to record their phone’s screen. With video recording in H.264/MP4 format, this new feature means you no longer have to use another third party software to record your WP8 device’s screen on your PC. In addition to this, this client is also open source, so if you want to include some new features and functions, you can download and play with the code as much as you want.

This new client and the link to its source code can be found at the original thread, so if you want to check it out, head over to the Screen Projection Client thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
