From computer screen to phone screen

Not sure if this is possible.

Can I send a screen view from a computer to a cell phone screen for remote viewing?

Here's what I'm trying to achieve. After much trial and error I have finally made a fixture to use my endoscope to view my 3D prints. I've managed to place the endoscope to within about 45 mm of the print nozzle without any interference. This now gives me the ability to view on screen and video 3D prints. But I also would like to use the same endoscope and set up to remotely monitor the print process. Is there software to link a cell phone to the video of a computer screen?

I have several WiFi cams, but they just don't give me the view or clarity to remotely monitor the 3D printer in action.

I can sit a watch a print take place without any problem. But if I as so much run to the john during a print, you can bet a problem takes place and the print will be need to be aborted.

Check around for "Miracast" compatibility.
Miracast is the generic "computer monitor over WiFi/ethernet" standard that is expanded on with Chromecast.

Just Google " stream video from computer to phone"
There are a number of ways this can be done.

Although I didn't look at all the option from the Google search, I did try the VLC option. The problems seems to be that I can stream recorded video. But I want to stream live video from the computer to the phone. It seems that all of the Google searches can do from phone to computer but not vice versa.

How about this. I can stream live using Facebook. I put it on private, only I can see it. But I can't seem to find a way to view the "live" video on my phone's FB app. What am I missing?

Going back a post-
IIRC, VLC can stream video to local port 8080
