About Splashtop Streamer?

The Splashtop Remote suite consists of a server component known as Splashtop Streamer, as well as a variety of client applications. The fundamental principle is that users must install the free Splashtop Streamer on the designated remote computer and then acquire a client application on their mobile device. The Splashtop Streamer functions as an agent on the remote computer, capturing its screen content, encoding it, and transmitting it to the client devices. It also processes commands from the clients and executes them on the remote computer. The connection between Splashtop Streamer and the client applications is established using the TCP/IP protocol. The client application is capable of locating a computer with Splashtop Streamer installed on the same network. In recent updates, Splashtop Remote has introduced Internet Discovery functionality, allowing client devices to connect to a computer with Splashtop Streamer using a Google account.
