[Survey] Looking Glass UX Improvements

lookingglass

#1

Hey guys,

I’m conducting some research on how to improve the UX for LookingGlass. I have some ideas already but I want to see what it’s users think?

Post your criticism/questions below!

Note: The goal here is not to manifest new features, but to improve the experience of using the software to make to ‘flow’ better and feel more seamless.


Looking Glass - Triage
#2

2 weeks


#3

Client:

Capturing the Super key and preventing the Linux DE from opening the start menu would be nice.

Notification of version mismatch.

Clipboard sharing

Distro packages?

Host:

Tray icon

Installer?


Documentation. I should really update my passthrough guides.


#4

Host:

Capture mode selection, Display Capture or Game Capture, like OBS, for those only wanting to hook onto a DirectX game capture for streaming.

GUI along with the tray icon.

More formats than just RAW RGB buffers, like NV12.

Client:

OBS Plugin client or Raw buffer translation to V4L2.


#5

Definitely another vote for a tray icon and an auto start option.
Adding a --version output to both the host and client would be a great help for checking the version mismatch issue.
