Chiaki is a Free and Open Source Client for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 Remote Play. It can be used to play in real time on a PlayStation as long as there is a network connection.
Usage: If your Console is on your local network, is turned on or in standby mode and does not have Discovery explicitly disabled, Chiaki should find it. Otherwise, you can add it manually. To do so, click the "+" icon in the top right, and enter your Console's IP address.
You will then need to register your Console with Chiaki. You will need two more pieces of information to do this.
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 as part of this snap. Simply run it in a terminal
chiaki.psn-account-id and follow the instructions.
Once you know your ID, write it down. You will likely never have to do this process again.
Obtaining a Registration PIN: To register a Console with a PIN, it must be put into registration mode. To do this on a PS4, simply go to: Settings -> Remote Play -> Add Device, or on a PS5: Settings -> System -> Remote Play -> Link Device.
You can now double-click your Console in Chiaki's main window to start Remote Play.
