Whether you’re a seasoned scrcpy user or new to this powerful tool for mirroring and controlling Android devices, this article will walk you through the key changes and enhancements in scrcpy v2.2.
Changes Since v2.1.1:
- Add option to mirror camera (#241, #4213)

The previous minor version introduced
--audio-source=mic to transmit the microphone instead of the device audio output.
This new version introduces
--video-source=camera to mirror the device camera instead of the device screen.
A bunch of new options have been added:
scrcpy --video-source=camera --camera-facing=front --camera-size=1920x1080
Check the camera documentation for more details.
Since the last scrcpy version, Android 14 has been released.
Unfortunately, several scrcpy features have been broken by changes in this new Android version:
--turn-screen-off(#3927): some internal functions have been removed, without replacement that scrcpy could use (it seems it also impacts the feature in Android Studio)
--rotation, which is independent) (#4011): some function parameters are now ignored
--crop(also #4011): some function parameters are now ignored
