To stream a PS5 screen to a Discord server and voice call, you will first need to download PS Remote Play on their PC. This app will allow you to get a connection between your console and PC. Below are the steps to install the application and use it for Discord streaming.

  • Install the PS Remote Play app on a PC that will be used for Discord.
  • Once signed in, make sure that the app is synced up with the PS5 being used for display.
  • To stream to Discord, make sure that a call is open to receive the stream being shared.
  • Select the “Share Your Screen” option and pick the window that is the PS Remote Play.

When doing any type of streaming, especially through a console-to-pc setup, it is important to check your internet speed and bandwidth before getting started and use a PC with good specs to ensure a good connection. Additionally, anyone using a laptop as their device with PS Remote Play will want to ensure their PC is plugged into a power supply. This will ensure the device doesn’t lose power during the stream. It can also kick a laptop into high-performance mode, to ensure the device stays cool and is providing the required power to the stream instead of entering a power-saving mode.
