tutorial PS4 to Laptop/PC Offline Remote Play Direct LAN Connection


Recommended Posts

Today I wanna show everyone how you can stream your PS4 directly to your PC using a LAN cable attached directly from your PS4 to your laptop or PC. This is more geared towards people with laptops or Windows based tablets who want to play ps4 games if they don't wanna connect directly to a TV or use remote play through the internet which will cause lag and delays. This method is going to be doing a direct connection from your PS4 to your PC/Laptop. I have tested this myself and had to figure things out. The advantages of doing this is no lag/delays, no dips in quality from streaming and no controller input lag. You will not be connecting to sony's servers which cuts out another point of Delay/Lag

(NOTE): This is easiest using Windows 10 because windows 10 has a built in WiFi hotspot option.

(NOTE 2): Only Windows 8.1+ is supported due to Sony's remote play not supporting Windows 7 or Windows 8

(NOTE 3): the initial setup will require your PS4 hooked up to a TV as you can not change NETWORK settings while using remote play

(NOTE 4): You may have to sign in the first on the remote play program it is a one time thing and you will not need to do that in the future as it is completely offline.

(NOTE 5): The WIFI Hotspot in Windows 10 will shut off after 10 minutes or so due to nothing being "connected to it" this is OK as the Hotspot is only used as a bridge for the initial remote play connection and will still function after remote play has started and 10 minutes has passed.

(Note 6): The Standard PS4 can only output remote play at 720p while the PS4 Pro can output remote play at 1080p. Both can do 60FPS though. In the remote play pc program settings select the high frame rate option.


  • 1. Download the PS4 remote play program  Please login or register to see this link.
  • 2. Download the latest PS4 Remote Play Auto-Patcher. This will allow you to use remote play offline without having to connect through Sony's servers. Download it here: Please login or register to see this link.
  • 3. Install the PS4 remote play program then before you run the program use the Auto-Patcher you downloaded which will automatically patch the program for offline use.
  • 4. Connect your PS4 to your Laptop/PC directly with a LAN cable. (The LAN connection will be listed as unidentified network and say no internet. This is normal.)

If you are using Windows 10 continue following this. Windows 8.1 users please follow the guide in the windows 8.1 section below:

  • 5.  Right click on the wifi icon on the bottom right and select "Open Network and Internet Settings" click "Change Adapter Settings" right click on the wifi adapter and click properties. Click  the sharing tab and check the box that says "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection" and click ok.
  • 6. On your computer click the notifications/options button on the bottom right of the screen (next to the time and date) and click "Mobile Hotspot" (This is how we are bridging our connections to connect directly to the PS4. You are not actually connecting through the Hotspot)
  • 7. On your PS4 go to Settings and then Network and run the setup with LAN selected instead of WIFI. Do the default/automatic setup. Nothing needs to be changed (If you are using  a hacked PS4 you can setup the DNS if you need) and run a network test to confirm everything connects.
  • 8. On the PC run the PS4 remote play program, Adjust settings if needed, Hook up your controller and click start. The program will say searching nearby  and in a few seconds will say connecting (If it says searching online for ps4 make sure the wifi hotspot is on as it turns off after about 10 minutes of nothing being connected to it)
  • 6. You are all set! Enjoy playing!

Windows 8.1 Wifi hotspot setup guide:

This is more complicated getting a Hotspot setup on windows 8.1 due to it not having the function built in as an option but can be done. 

Follow this guide here to set it up  Please login or register to see this link. and then once that is done continue onto step 5 above and ignore step 6.


Not many people will have a use for this but I find it nice if you wanna play your PS4 games in a more comfortable setting without lag or are on a trip where you don't have access to a TV.

If you have any questions or I missed something or need to add anything please let me know in the comments!

This is my first tutorial and took a lot of trial and error getting working but I use this all the time.

      How to download and install PS3 games from NGR
      Jailbroken PS3 A computer  (ill be using windows 7 for this example but pretty much anything will work) USB memory stick of 8GB or larger Please login or register to see this link. already installed on your ps3 Please login or register to see this link.  (or a FTP client of your choosing but i would highly recommend FilaZilla) WinRAR 5.21 / 7-Zip 15.12 or newer (I'll be using WinRAR when we get up to that bit) So a few extra things befoul we start. I'm going to be going over this from a very basic point of view so some more advanced users may not get much out of this post.
      This is also not the best way of doing some of this but it is the most simplest.
      Also there are two main formats for game dump, "Folder" and ".PKG" and I will be going over both of them but .PKG will be first so if you do need to install multiMAN you can use that as a guide.
      Sadly I wasn't able to work out how to take screenshots of the PS3's XMB without a capture card and I spent like 2 days trying to at some point i'm just going to have to wright this thing and leave out a few screenshots but I will do my best to explain it all
      [Install a .PKG game via USB]
      First of we are going to need to take your USB stick and plug it into your computer, Then go to "Computer" or "This PC" on your computer
      Then right click on your USB stick and go to Properties, we want to make sure our USB stick is formatted to FAT32 to the PS3 can read it and has enough space for the PKG we want to install

      If your USB isn't formatted properly there is meant to be a format button at the bottom but its missing on my computer O.o? but my computer is broken soo yeah moving on
      We need a .PKG game to install so lets download Jet Set Radio from here
      When you have that downloaded you should just have a PKG file now, you want to copy that PKG file over to the root of the USB stick like this
      It can not be in any folders or anything otherwise the PS3 wont be able to find it

      Once Windows or whatever OS you using has done coping that you can remove your USB stick from you computer and put it into a free USB port on your PS3. Any will do but the one on the far right is technically best but it really doesn't matter providing you don't have have other USB sticks already in your PS3
      Now you want to navigate to the Game Section and then to ★Install Package Files and we should see our NPEB00924-[Jet Set Radio].pkg file there
      On ReBug CFWs only: (you can skip ahead if you can see the pkg alredy)
      In the Game section you want to select ★Package Manager instead then select ★Install Package Files and then select Standard and we should see our pkg file
      Now you can see the NPEB00924-[Jet Set Radio].pkg file there you can simple select it and a install progress bar will appear. Now we just wait till the PS3 has finished installing our PKG file and when the install has finished you can simple just press back.
      Now we should be back at the Game section and you should see Jet Set Radio at the top there someone and you can run and play it now just like any other legit PSN game you would of downloaded
      [Installing a Folder game FTP]
      For this tutorial we are going to use @Yukiko's copy of CoD Black Ops, hope you don't mind senpai 
      So on Yukiko's thread you want to scroll down to Download: and unhide the hidden content then, download BOTH parts from Mega
      Once you have both parts download into the same place on your computer, right click on the part1.rar go to WinRAR and then Extract to Call_of_Duty.....\

      What we are doing here is extracting both parts to one single folder. As Yukiko has pack this properly you could just pick Extract Here to save our self's from folder inception but most people don't and it takes to long to check every time so I always do the Extract to folder thing out of habit
      At this point a password prompt will appear, Now go back to Yukiko's thread and find the Password: section and copy it into the Enter password box in WinRAR and then press OK

      If you get a "The specified password is incorrect." error try unpacking it again and double checking the password to make sure there isn't a space in front of it.
      And now we wait awhile for this to unpack...
      Once WinRAR has done it's thing that window will close and you will be lift with a "Call_of_Duty_Black_Ops_READNFO_JPN_JB_PS3-Caravan" folder, enter that folder and you will find a
      "BLJM60287-[Call of Duty Black Ops Dubbed JAP]" folder and a "cvn-codbofjb.nfo" file. That nfo file is the ReadMe so for now we just want to focus on the new folder we have
      Back over on the PS3 boot up multiMAN
      Then go over to settings and select System Information 
      Note down your IP Address we are going to need it for later. If you don't see a IP Address there you will have make sure your PS3 is connect to your local network
      Now go down to FTP Service and set it to Enable (No Timeout) and reboot multiMAN for good measure the role back over to your computer and boot up FileZilla 
      In the Host: text box at the top of FileZilla you want to enter your IP Address of your PS3 and then click Quickconnect and the the rest of the info will be auto filled out for you

      Now on the Remote site: side of FileZilla (which is your PS3 BTW) you want to navigate to dev_hdd0
      Then simple Drag'n'Drop the "BLJM60287-[Call of Duty Black Ops Dubbed JAP]" folder to the GAMES folder Not the game folder If you don't have a GAMES folder for some reason you can make a new one by right clicking on dev_hdd0 at the top and click Create director and then type GAMES like this

      The game folder is where the ps3 stors your legit pkg installed games the GAMES folder is where all the folder games and ISOs(i think) are stored onto your ps3
      Ok so after you have Drag'n'Droped your CoD folder to your GAMES folder and FileZilla copys all the files have successful transferred across  to the PS3 we can close FileZilla and go back to the PS3

      Now you Should still have multiMAN open so go across to the Game section and scroll to the top and select Refresh
      After the little arrows have finished spinning around your games list will re-render 
      Now when you scroll through your games list you should see a Call of Duty®: Black Ops game has now be installed so you can select it to load the game
      Your PS3 will make a beep and verify some data and the kick you back to the PS3s XMB main menu this is normal
      Scroll up in your game list and near the top you should now see a blu-ray has been magically inserted into your PS3 if you go to that blu-ray it will now say Call of Duty®: Black Ops and you can now run the game just as you would if you had a legit blu-ray inserted into your PS3
      And with that I hope i covered everything, kinda annoying i couldn't screenshot my PS3 and this took way longer to make then it should of but yeah hope it helps you and feel free to leave a comment if you have any issues 
      Special Thanks to @RyouBakura for helping me recovering this thread after my browser crashed
