Release: PS4 hardware Dolby TrueHD decoder 1.0.1
Developer jocover has published an update to his Dolby TrueHD decoder, initially released a couple days ago. This new release goes beyond the proof of concept stage and allows yo to stream TrueHD audio from your PC for your PS4 to decode.
What is PS4 Hardware Dolby TrueHD decoder?
This is a PS4 plugin for your Jailbroken PS4 to decode Dolby TrueHD to Linear PCM audio data. This is useful in particular if your home sound system does not support Dolby True HD, to give you the best sound options, streaming the audio from the PS4. The hardware decoding capability of the PS4 should ensure optimal quality.
The TrueHD Decoder plugin is basically a mini-server that listens from port 7721 on the PS4. You’ll send the TrueHD file to your PS4 via ffmpeg (e.g. on your PC), for the PS4 to decode and output it.
What’s new in TrueHD decoder 1.0.1?
This version brings network support, allowing you to stream from your PC (see ffmepg command below), for the PS4 to decode. (The original release was a proof of concept that only allowed to play a “sample.thd” file locally)
Download and use PS4 Dolby TrueHD decoder
You can download the TrueHD decoder from the developer’s website here. Install and run like any other pkg file on your Jailbroken PS4.
Once the plugin is running, from your PC with ffmpeg, type:
ffmpeg -re -i filename -map 0:a:0 -c:a copy -bsf:a truehd_core -f truehd udp://PS4_IP:7721
of course, replacing “filename” with your local truehd filename on your PC, and “PS4_IP” with your PS4’s ip address. For example:
ffmpeg -re -i C:/Users/wololo/test.thd -map 0:a:0 -c:a copy -bsf:a truehd_core -f truehd udp://192.168.1.10:7721
