Recently PS4Scene developer @marcussacana made available on Github a DirectPackageInstaller Tool followed by DirectPackageInstaller 4.1.0 for Windows with source code to preview and send PS4 PKGs to a PS4 Remote Installer homebrew application from direct PKG URL links. 💻

Download: DirectPackageInstaller.exe (Latest Version) / GIT

He has a Ko-Fi Page <3 set up if you'd like to support his work, and for those following in the PlayStation 4 Scene this comes proceeding several previous PS4 PKG Installation Apps including:
From the README.md, to quote: DirectPackageInstaller

How It Works

The tool it self is very simple, the Remote Package Installer have an API that allow you put packages from URLs into your PS4 download queue, the DirectPackageInstaller just use that API to push to your PS4 the download URL, helping only to you preview the PKG that you're installing.

With that said, the tool can do more than that as well, the PS4 have a very poor speed to download things from the web, but that is limited to WAN connections, when he is downloading something from LAN connection he can reach best speeds, with that in mind this tool have an automatically proxy server that your PS4 will automatically use to download your PKG, and with help of this proxy the poor speed will be basically solved.

The tool allow you to install pkgs from RAR as well, in this case the tool will work in a very similar way to the other existing ones, but with the advantage that everything is done simultaneously, while the file is downloaded from the internet, it is being decompressed to your disk temporarily and is sent to your PS4, in this scenario you don't need to waste time extracting large PKGs or depending on your file manager downloads, doing the post-download file reconstruction, everything is done simultaneously saving a lot of time of your life.

Warnings
  • Due to random access issues in compressed files, the RAR direct download feature may not be as reliable, although tested in some games, it has not been tested enough to guarantee its reliability.
  • The proxy feature in turn has proven to work in games over 90 GB, and I believe it is relatively stable as it depends on your internet connection and download server.
  • Compressed file downloads generate a temporary PKG 'cache' on your hard drive, which will require free space according to the size of the PKG on your hard drive.

Technically possible, in fact I've already implemented it to test, but the free limitations of 1fichier cause a lot of headache, I'm wondering whether or not to publish support for 1fichier since it's so problematic, if I want to make it stable I should also implement a cache in disk instead of letting the PS4 download the pkg.

I have 3 solutions regarding this server at the moment.
  1. Search for a new proxy and allow reconnections free, (Very, very slow download because of the public proxy)
  2. When the user places a link from 1fichier automatically the DirectPackageInstaller should temporarily download to HD and transfer to PS4 as the download progresses. (In that case the download may have a better performance assuming the connection aren't lost, if it lost you lose your download progress and it wouldn't be my fault, you can only open another pkg or try again after an hour the previous download is interrupted)
  3. Forget this host that I particularly consider garbage and I don't understand who has the courage to upload on it, deleting the code that is already in the program and I still haven't sent it (seems the best).

From my understanding, if a 20GB PKG is on Person A's 1fichier then Person B, Person C, etc can copy it generating their own 1fichier mirror links (even changing the file name) without reuploading almost effortlessly... so perhaps some of the appeal may be in saving bandwidth and time for file-sharers. :unsure:

That's useful, but when I tried upload 80gb pkg in my computer to the 1fichier I got a 40~60kbps speed, I just closed the browser and don't tried again, Not sure If got a bad time that the server is slow or maybe there's a proper client to upload, I also tried the direct link 'upload' feature of the 1fichier but after a good time waiting he just failed.

Since I has already uploaded my dump in gdrive and zippy, and got that problem in the 1fichier I was never interested in trying to upload content to it again, not least because these download limitations are annoying, even though I have an alldebrid account.

I personally love the mediafire, it allow copy to your account as well, have good download and upload speed and we can use that old bug to create many 10gb accounts with a single email. (who know knows), the problem is just the 10gb limitation, but it's nothing if we compare with the 500mb of the zippyshare that are more used than the mediafire
