    No your the joke. Mac stuff does not belong in the "Nintendo Wii Chat" section.

    new macs can run windows, but in order to do that, you must own a windows startup, which can be pretty pricey, just buying Microsoft office for my mac would have been a fortune(to me), but my friend was able to share his with me

    Not necessarily. His friend could have a multi-user copy.

    True, but (as far as I know), you don't get a discount until you're talking >5 computers, but I'm not sure....even one single-user license is ridiculous.

    [this might be incorrect]
    but, i was reading through the manual and it said the Wii is capable with .mov, and macs basiclaly run on .mov since its a quicktime format, which isnt so easy to find on windows which might be why wii video 9 isnt available for mac, so find a converter that makes .mov

    since I havnt had time to test that..I have no clue if its true, all I know is this is what the manual says

    Video Files:
    Format:Quicktime(motion JPEG)(.mov files)
    Size up to 848 x 480

    From what I checked, video 9 is only for Windows. If I am wrong you probably only need to update your OS from 10.2 to 10.4 (Tiger). If all you need to do is convert video to mp4 then just download a program called MoviePod from versiontracker.com

    Only if the other computer is in the household of the owner of the software.

    This is an old mac, you can tell as i believe 10.2 is panther, which was relised last year, and the new intel macs were relised at the start of this year, and the switch over to intel chips made it possible to run windows *not emulate it*

    Well WinBLOWS, so i will stick with my Mac :)
    anyway how can you say mac's suck, macintosh is a reference to the actually computer, which compared to an IBM-clone is far better.

    I am a Mac/Linux/FreeBSD/Windows user. Wii Video 9 will work on Windows. Not on mac. You might be able to run it through emulation. There might also be some coverters for FLV converters. I believe that is what the Wii Video 9 does...coverts Videos to compressed Flash Videos. I am sure there are other FLV converters for OS X. Also upgrade to the latest OS Build, because you are really far behind.
