What VNC Viewer is best for U2?

Unread post by Cartridge » Wed Nov 20, 2013 7:46 am

What do you guys think is the best VNC Viewer for the U2. The usage of this software is for video streaming from host computer to guest.
I'm currently using 13.10 Saucy Salamander and I think I see a TightVNC type viewer on Synaptic, I've used it a couple times on an android tablet.
Haven't really explored any else of this kind of software.

Either Vinagre or Remmina, both of which are included on the Whisper image.

ROB! I'm getting around ~40-~45FPS with 800x600 as host, 24 bit, best quality using Desktop Sharing on my Host (Pinguy 12.04 LTS) and Remmina on U2. Thanks for showing me Remmina.
I can zoom in with my TV options, make it look a bit more 16:9 and close to fullscreen around 1.5 inch black bars all round.

That's great! @meveric actually recommended including Remmina on the Whisper image, which I'm glad is working well for you.

FYI, you can also use either of my Android images (Pocket Rocket and Couch Potato) to access your VNC host the same way, by using the bVNCViewer app.

My everyday Odroid setup is Pocket Rocket running a remote session of Whisper on a second Odroid. If I also create a remote session to my monster x86 PC, I can make it look to an observer like I'm running 1080p Android, Windows and Linux simultaneously on a single Odroid U2 8-)

Conversely, if I enable Desktop Sharing on the Odroid using Vino, I can control Whisper from my Macbook Pro, where it conveniently shows up as a shared screen icon in the left side of the OSX Finder.
