Playstation 4 Using a laptop as a monitor possible? Solved!

If you have a Playstation 4 and a laptop then you might wonder whether you can produce video output directly from the laptop screen. So you could play your Playstation 4 game via the laptop display.

The answer to this question is unfortunately no, at least if your laptop has only one HDMI Out connector.

Because over a HDMI Out connection only data can be sent from the laptop to a screen, not vice versa. Solutions such as HDMI on USB 3.1 are usually not functional, which is why there is little need for hope.

So you can't transfer games from the Playstation to the laptop screen without a lot of effort or a new laptop.
