    Instead of a video camera to capturing off-screen videos on the Wii, is there a way capture on-screen videos on the Wii? I tried the DVD method with a DVD player to record on-screen videos, and when I used the recorded DVD discs on my computer, I have no luck.

    So is there a way capture on-screen videos on the Wii?

    EDIT: Capturing videos on Wii would be nice to show the games.

    If you bought a video card for your pc that has inputs for the Wii's video/audio wires, you could use any screen recording pc software.

    Dazzler it works for all consoles


    Check out my channel on youtube: Jodecideion
    My early videos was the camera in front of TV/ THen I got a Dazzler under 100 bucks. Now my videos look way better.

    I would think the best way to do screen grabs/video would be to use the Dolphin emulator on the PC and just capture directly to the PC hard drive.

    Lots of devices will work.

    Dazzle is a commonly used one and pretty good for a Wii since the Wii is SD only.

    However if you want more quality and the ability to record HD get a HAVA.

    I have a Adaptec Gamebridge its basically the same as a Dazzl but a bit nicer (though now no longer made so good luck finding one)

    a TV capture card will work too but may have some lag between what your doing and what you see/hear.

    Out of curiousity, I recall my original xbox being able to record videos once I threw an XDK bios at it. I know I shouldn't be comparing the wii with an xbox.
    Basically, is there any realistic hope of having a separate program/IOS(even maybe 249) that will reload and allow for capture of screenshots/videos?
