According to the developer, PiPS5 is inspired by TeslaCam and utilizes a Raspberry Pi emulating a USB stick in conjunction with a simple Web interface for transferring the pictures and videos.
Below are the details from the README.md: PiPS5
Make sharing your PS5 screenshots and video clips just a little bit easier.
The code is provided as-is and no support will be provided.
- RaspberryPi Zero W
- Understand how teslausb works
How does it work?
Raspberry Pi can emulate USB gadgets so we emulate it as a USB mass storage device that PS5 can write into and than we start a web server which provide you UI to access into the content of that emulated storage.
Note that will the access is enabled on the Web UI, the storage will be unmounted from PS5. You will need to lock it again for it to be usable on PS5.
I might have missed some steps here…
From a computer:
- run yarn; yarn build in the repo
- copy the repo into the sd card
From the raspberry pi:
- Setup USB gadget mode (add dtoverlay=dwc2 to /boot/config, add dwc2 and g_mass_storage to /etc/modules)
- Install nginx, supervisor, avahi-daemon, ruby
- Change its hostname to pips5 (this allows it to be reachable via pips5.local)
- copy supervisord.conf to /etc/supervisord/conf.d/pips5.conf
- copy nginx.conf to /etc/nginx/sites-available/default
- add fstab to /etc/fstab
- add modprobe.conf to /etc/modprobe.conf
- run setup.sh to create a 4GB image file
- run bundle install in the repo
- make sure nginx, supervisor and avahi-daemon are enabled (systemctl enable)
