Unlimited PS4 gameplay capturing on a Mac (with twitch)

First things first: I don’t know if this is legal! If I’m doing something illegal here, please tell me! I don’t wanna post a guide to do something criminal. This is just a technical workaround from a nerdy tech freak! But I couldn’t find anything in the legal documents.

So… you can’t capture more than 15 minutes of gameplay on your PS4. I’ve got a cool little workaround IF (yeah big IF) you have a powerful and stable internet connection. On the plus side you get the files directly onto your Mac.

Windows… Yeah… I don’t really use Windows… But I’ve seen someone doing this on Windows, so it should work… I just have no guide for that.

Things you need:
1. PS4
2. Mac
3. account
4. powerful internet connection

Now follow me 🙂

1. Download and install VLC player from here (This is a video player, it should work with 64bit. If it doesn’t, try the 32bit version of VLC.)

2. Download and Install Git from here
(Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.)

3.Download and Install Python from here
(Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics.)

4.Download(Install this later) python-setuptools from here…870bc7919059ea
(Easily download, build, install, upgrade, and uninstall Python packages.)

5. Open Terminal

6. Browse to the directory where you downloaded python-setuptools (for example cd ~/Downloads) and type sudo sh setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg (please do not rename the file and the installation will ask for your password)

7. Now type: git clone git://

8. download and run an RTMPDump Installer
(from rtmpdump is a toolkit for RTMP streams.)

9. Install livestreamer (if in Downloads type cd ~/Downloads/livestreamer)
Type: sudo python install

10.To open up a stream in Terminal type: livestreamer , this will not start the stream right away but will list the available qualities. To choose type: livestreamer source (or high, or what quality you like) and hit enter. It will open VLC player. If the stream doesn’t open right away double-click the „fd://0“ in the playlist.

11.Press command+shift+R to record.
(You can setup a destination in the VLC settings)

This is it! HTH!
