    Important question!

    Hey Guys,

    for a few weeks now I want to buy a certain USB-device that allows me to record my wii games on my laptop. However Im not sure if that device allows me to that. It is intended to record camcorders, it has got the yellow red and white plug on it.

    So my reasoning ( and my dads ) is that the wii signal is the same as the camcorder. It would not matter to that device if its a camcorder signal it records or the same red yellow white wires from my wii?

    Is this correct?
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    The input is standardised, so yes. It will work for all devices that use the red-white-yellow input.

    Make sure it supports PAL though.

    Nice. A splitter shouldn't be too expensive.

    However, it might be better (if your laptop has a screen-out port) to route it from your laptop to your tv, rather than use a splitter.

    i don't think so... that might cause lag if the laptop processes the information then exports it. a splitter will be fine.

    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    Depends on the graphics card and processor.

    My laptop does it fine. Specs are:
    160GB hard drive
    Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86ghz
    2GB ram
    Intel 945G intergrated graphics card

    Yea mine has 1 gig of ram. I bought it and it works!! Uploading my first video as we speak

    Thanks for the suggestion of routing it to my tv but Im afraid that I will get some lag sometimes. Its not that common just when theres some other things going on on my laptop. And its only a tiny fraction but I just want to play normaly
