    Short answer: YOU CANT.
    Long answer:you cant because laptops that have hdmi ports are only hdmi out ports. (For outputting what your laptop shows onto a seperate screen such as a tv or monitor)

    What youd need to make that work would be an hdmi input port which no laptop has this.

    Your gonna need to get a TV or computer monitor that has HDMI input in the end.

    Here is a cheap 32 in tv with hdmi.

    If your on the latest OSes install remote play for PC/Macs but youll need a normal HDMI TV located else were first to set it up...

    then use just the PC

    Its cheaper than spending ~$100 on a USB 2.0 capture card which has 300ms lag...

    or spending ~$150 on a USB3.0 or PCIe capture card.. 

     

    Instead a fully Wired connection will get you ~50ms lag...

    Heres the link to remote play on PC/Mac if you're interested: https://remoteplay.dl.playstation.net/remoteplay/lang/en/index.html

     

    As stated, laptops do not have a HDMI IN port (just HDMI OUT) so you cant use HDMI to see your PS4 in your laptop that way

  • Sorry to reply so late, but the other answers are incorrect. You can connect your PS4 TO your laptop, but not cheaply. You would have to use either an external USB capture device, or a HDMI to Expresscard adapter. And, both of these options would probably be more expensive than just buying a little HDTV of equivilent size to your laptop's screen.

    Capture cards costing >$150 will come with all the software to run over USB 3.0 

    BUT you STILL require a HDTV to Set up the PS4 FIRST...

    Capture card will not run with the PS4 UNTILL HDCP has been disabled on PS4... and you NEED to be able to see the screen to do that...
