Chiaki is a Free and Open Source Software Client for PlayStation 4 Remote Play for Linux, macOS, Windows and potentially even more platforms.
Everything necessary for a full streaming session, including the initial registration and wakeup of the console, is supported. The following features however are yet to be implemented:
- Congestion Control
- H264 Error Concealment (FEC and active error recovery however are implemented)
- Touchpad support (Triggering the Touchpad Button is currently possible by pressing
Ton the keyboard)
- Configurable Keybindings
Downloading a Release
Builds are provided for Linux, macOS and Windows. You can find them here.
- Linux: The provided file is an AppImage. Simply make it executable (
chmod +x <file>.AppImage) and run it.
- macOS: Drag the application from the
.dmginto your Applications folder.
- Windows: Extract the
.zipfile and execute
Building from Source
Dependencies are CMake, Qt 5 with QtMultimedia, QtOpenGL and QtSvg, FFMPEG (libavcodec with H264 is enough), libopus, OpenSSL 1.1, protoc and the protobuf Python library (only used during compilation for Nanopb). Then, Chiaki builds just like any other CMake project:
git submodule update --init mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make
Obtaining your PSN AccountID
Starting with PS4 7.0, it is necessary to use a so-called "AccountID" as opposed to the "Online-ID" for registration (streaming itself did not change). This ID seems to be a unique identifier for a PSN Account and it can be obtained from the PSN after logging in using OAuth. A Python 3 script which does this is provided in scripts/psn-account-id.py. Simply run it in a terminal and follow the instructions. Once you know your ID, write it down. You will likely never have to do this process again.
Also thanks to delroth for analyzing the registration and wakeup protocol, grill2010 for analyzing the PSN's OAuth Login, as well as a huge thank you to FioraAeterna for giving me some extremely helpful information about FEC and error correction.
