When I try to launch the Screencast tool in Droid Explorer I am presented with this dialog.

Application Blocked by Java Secturity

Disclaimer: I am the lead developer of Droid Explorer

The Screencast application is out of the control of Droid Explorer development team as it is a 3rd party project. The project actually seems like it has been abandoned.

I found a fork of the code on Github that looks like it is under more active development: https://github.com/xSAVIKx/AndroidScreencast


The workaround to get it working is only a few steps:

  1. Open the Java Control Panel (Located in the Windows Control Panel) Control Panel
  2. Next click the Security Tab and Click on Edit Site List... Security Tab
  3. Click Add and enter http://androidscreencast.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/AndroidScreencast/dist/androidscreencast.jnlp (This may change in the future for the github fork) Url
  4. Click OK
  5. Click Continue
  6. Click OK to close the Java Security Control Panel

Note: When you launch the Screencast plugin again, you will be presented with a warning because the application is not signed by the developer.
