    Is there anyway possible to record gameplay off of a Wii U without using a Capture Card? If not, can you stream the Wii U to your PC, like, emulate a gamepad on the PC and record it from there? Thanks in advance.

    Screenshots are possible through Wii U Image Share.

    I guess you'd be out of luck.

    My point exactly, why would someone need to do such things as upload a picture to get screen shots? the system has a SD card SLOT. Super smash bros can take screen shots and save it on there. Why can't anything else? Is just dumb to even think about require to upload a picture to the internet to some place then use a pc to get it later.

    Now that switch is out, screen shots are easy. Though if it had a video recorder built in like the shield tablet, that be cool. Even twitch streaming on that 5GHZ AC wifi, some impressive new features be great improvement. :)

    I didn't have interest in recording wii u video without capture card, but i dunno if is possible to maybe create some kind of software encoder homebrew for the system? But least screen shouts shouldn't be a issue period. Doing reviews without capture card is next to impossible cause of this. Another reason why not many wii u reviews on this site even exist, cause of reasons like simple features done wrong.

    To the original post, I may not be able to provide a very good solution to your question but there does exist a capture devices that can record videos without any pc, all powered by usb and SD card. Though is kinda against what you asked, i figured it maybe was curious to find a way to do so without needing a computer to do much work, Avermedia Live gamer portable is a capture system that doesn't need a pc so if is not something you interested in, sorry i'm not of much help. (That feels when you also want what been asked before) :(

    Super Smash Bros. has this function hardcoded.
    Unless somebody decides to develop capture, render and produce type of homebrew which wouldn't crash everything or make Wii U throw DSI expection.

    So then maybe reverse engineer that game for a way to create a homebrew to do such things? I mean we have cfw, but we don't have plugins like psp and that remote joy thing to use psp games on pc. But i suppose is a matter of who willing to try? To be honest i never saw psp like cfw plugins for wii or wii u. 3DS has it with luma and ntr but i hope perhaps wii can get it :)

    If boot1 becomes a thing, then we will be able to [hopefully] flash OS with screenshot ability. For now, i don't see it happening since everything runs in HBL range.
    [Which creates incompatibility with some games]

    Absolutely not. If you can find a computer with HDMI In port, then you can record 1080p HD Wii U Gameplay. Otherwise, you can need to purchase a capture card.
