  • Auto-launch Streamer: Check this to allow Streamer auto-startup when system launch
  • Idle session timeout: Specify when an idle session should be automatically disconnected
  • Hide system tray icon: If this item is checked, the Android Streamer will hide "stop & exit" from the app's setting menu, and also hide "exit" from the system notification area, this is for the purpose to keep the Android Streamer running. (Notice: if Android Streamer is force killed in device's settings page, Android Streamer will stop running)
  • Request permission to connect: This option decides how the connect request will be handled. (Notice: if the device is running in Kiosk mode, the prompt dialog might be blocked, in this case, please set it to "off" to make sure the connection can be established)
    • Reject connection after request expires: it will reject the connection unless user accept
    • Accept connection after request expires: it will accept the connection after request expires
    • Off: no reconnect connection will be prompted, session will be automatically accepted
  • Lock Streamer settings using Splashtop admin credentials: if this option checked, some of the Streamer setting items will be locked, user will be required to unlock with a Splashtop account with admin right to unlock and change.
