Channel Version Published

A free Remote Desktop Client for Linux, macOS and Windows.


Thincast Client is a free multi-platform RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) Client with FreeRDP at it's core that allows you to connect to a Remote PC or to virtual applications and desktops.

It offers features like built-in support for redirecting webcams and smart cards, configuring remote apps, regular security updates and hardware-accelerated video decoding to extend the battery life of your device, ideal when working on the go.

As of today, we are the main contributor to the FreeRDP project. In the last months we spent days and nights looking for bugs and implementing new features, which directly benefit the further development of FreeRDP.
