Chiaki wiki: https://git.sr.ht/~thestr4ng3r/chiaki
Pi fork wiki: https://github.com/Fredrum/chiaki/wiki/Chiaki-for-the-Raspberry-Pi
To run: Menu -> Games -> Chiaki
To run in a terminal: Chiaki/build/gui/chiaki
----- Usage -----
Once Chiaki is running, you can enter the settings menu (top right) to configure general/stream settings to your liking. Note that stream quality options are limited depending on your console. To connect and use a controller with Chiaki, please refer to the Pi fork wiki.
In most cases, Chiaki will automatically detect your console if it's turned on. Otherwise, you can add it manually by pressing the "+" icon (top right) and entering your console's IP address.
To finalize the registration, two more parameters need to be set.
PSN AccountID: In a terminal, enter "python3 Chiaki/psn-account-id.py" and follow the instructions.
On a PS4, go to: Settings -> Remote Play -> Add Device;
On a PS5, go to: Settings -> System -> Remote Play -> Link Device.
You can now double-click your console in Chiaki's main window to start remote play!
Fortunately, Chiaki is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Chiaki will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
