    I haven't looked at the links, but if you have AV inputs then you can definitely run the signal from your Wii to your PC. To record it might be more tricky because even if you have the software to record TV it might only accept the input from an RF signal. Any standard video capture / editing software will allow to to record your footage for all to see, but it might be of reduced size.

    Those inputs are called "composite" inputs... the yellow is for the video, the red and white are for the audio (red=right, white=left).

    Your computer has no idea that the signal is coming from a Wii. It's just a video signal. If you place your IR bar above/below your monitor you should indeed be able to play your Wii on the computer.

    How to record will depend entirely on the software that came with your computer. There's no one way about it.

    You use whatever software came with the card/computer. It doesn't just magically do something when you plug it in.

    RTFM

    Don't do it. Not worth it. It lags about 1 second. So move, and the pointer on the screen moves a second later.

    *EDIT*
    Too late @_@.
    There's absolutely no way to unlag the Wii on your computer. Unless you have a $108273108947901283 computer, it's pretty much impossible.
    If you want to add me in Brawl, PM me that you're going to (and include your brawl name and friend code). Also, PM me if you delete me, so I can delete your name, too. I need space, ya know.
    FC: 2707-1312-0571
    For anyone who added me in Brawl and deleted me because it still said "Awaiting Registration", please re-add me. It just means we both haven't been online at the same time.
