SkyRemote is a plugin for Skype that automatically detects people from your list with SkyRemote already installed, lets you easily share your desktop with them (remote desktop), control theirs and record sessions to AVI files. It allows you to share your desktop with multiple people simultaneously while maintaining session quality. The plugin uses Skype features such as certification protocol, strong encryption and communication layer and connection management, allowing you to share your own desktop and control someone else’s over a secure connection provided by Skype. It comes with a custom display mirror VGA compatible driver that boosts both local and remove desktop performance without replacing your old display driver.
After installing SkyRemote, you will have to launch the application separately after Skype starts. Allow access to the application in Skype by clicking Allow Access.
Once the application starts, it will automatically detect other people in your Skype friend list who have SkyRemote installed, and they will appear in the system tray menu. Right-click the application to view Status, Request Remote Desktop and Share Desktop.
Once you share your desktop or request remote assistance, your friends will receive a notification. The desired operation will start once the other person clicks Accept.
In case of desktop sharing, a window will pop-up on the receiver’s desktop with your complete screen visible to him.
Right-click the system tray icon and select Configuration to access SkyRemote Configuration window. It allows you to specify settings related to Screen ( Picture, JPEG Compression), Plugin (Security, Effects, Notification Balloons) and AVI Settings (Picture, Video Compression, Output Path).
SkyRemote is compatible with 3.0 and higher versions of Skype.
