    How the heck does remote playback work offline?? It streams through internet does it not ?? How the heck does it connect otherwise?

    • MarSprite says:

      Optimally, remote play is done via home networking. Usually home networking provides a much larger data pipeline, and it always provides a much faster ping time – Barring any strange issues.

      A common misconception. It stream over local network. I don’t think it even work over the internet.

      • MarSprite says:

        It does work over the internet. I’ve done it for testing purposes, and I used to have a friend who remote played from work.

    • PlaGeRaN says:

      when remote play is enabled, your ps4 broadcast an encrypted signal.
      Didn’t know that till I had my laptop infront of me.

      Same thing applies when you connect via Vita: vita can connect directly to the ps4 without any internet connection.

      Just not sure how far away you can be from the device tho

    No linux support though…

    Great stuff, love it! Now, all we need is a proper PS4 hack so we can associate a PSN account and pair the devices for the first time without an internet connection (my PS4 still can’t do that as I’m keeping it on a low firmware)

  6. PlaGeRaN says:

    v2 “requires” ps4 to be on v4.50 or later.

    so much for that idea unless someone has an older version??

    A patch that would make Xbox controllers work in Remote Play app would be great.

    We may need an emulator to play PS4 remote games without DS4
