    Greetings!

    I have a question concerning the availability of an app that uses a tablet to capture the video displayed on my pc.

    So that I may use my otherwise idle tablet to disburden my pc's cpu from this task.

    I am using a Asus 840 fhd and I understand that it has a 1,88 ghz Quadcore - so plenty of power, no?
    It also features usb aswell as hdmi.


    I already took a look into google but I only got hits for capturing my tablet's video.

    So either there is no such thing or it is quite well hidden.

    fondest regards

    Welcome to the forum

    This
    has me confused. If you want a way to display your PC on the tablet there is no input on Android tablets for the PC. There are, however, a few apps that will allow you to take control of the PC and that will display on the tablet. Splashtop is the most popular.

    Allright so let me be clear: I want to capture my pc's video.

    I was wondering if I can do that by using a tablet.

    The answer is no. There is no input capability, only output.
