    Wait, you want to connect your Wii to your monitor, and record and play? Can't you use a capture card?
    Any way, use a RCA that has a VGA port at the end.

    you confused about 90% people who read your post...
    VGA adapter is the name of a converter that converts your output video stream to another type of output stream that is supported by your video card, now if you want to connect your Wii to your PC and capture the Wii stream while streaming it to the screen in order to play you have to buy a capture device, you can't cut from your cables another cable and connect your PC with your Wii and Screen - even if it's done physicilly it will split the stream, that's why you HAVE to buy a device that duplicates your output of the Wii video stream to both screen and PC, named capture device, not VGA converter

    Why can't you buy a converter between HDMI\VGA\DVI and three bananas (RCA) that the Wii uses? your PC can't understand RCA beyond the audio banana being connected to the AUX audio input of the PC, if you wonder about the other RCA\banana connections, they are still the sound card, and the sound card processes just sound

    A VGA adapter will work with your computer monitor. You can't use it with a laptop.
    A USB capture card would work with your laptop though, and you'd be able to record game footage as well.


    That's the method I would use. A basic capture card with composite inputs doesn't cost much. Component inputs push the price up though.

    Ok I would agree to the fact that this post is confusing but if you watch the video it help understanding.



    You bought a crappy(cheap?) cable from macy's that has VGA on one end and RCA to the other and tought It could help you play wii on your computers monitor.


    In order to acheive that you need a converter , just a cable will not work.

    This is just for the video as VGA only is video. Hooking up audio is fairly easy and cheap depends on what you have.
