    Arg. I wish it were easier than that. Is there anyway someone could dump a save of the GBcamera, use the save on a computer, and use a screen recorder?

    OR MUCH BETTER. PUT IT IN YOUR GBA PLAYER ON THE GAMECUBE, and record the tv with the digital camera. Would be better than just recording the gba screen.

    mcbey, that's a good idea, but i'd have to have a super gameboy and an snes, gameboy player won't take anything but gba...

    okay well i got a decent recording, and here i'll divulge my tips

    1) Do not use the original gameboy, i recorded off of a gbc screen and got a much sharper image

    2) Record in a room with alot of light, but not underneath a very bright concentrated lamp because you will get glare

    3) Stand back and zoom in rather than put the camera up close, otherwise you'll see your reflection in the gb screen better than whats actually on it

    4) try and use a camera with a macro hq option, so you can get better detail on the small screen

    hope this will help some

    edit: here's the video

    I just saw this topic, but the GC Gameboy player will run GB and GBC games in addition to GBA. I've captured video from mine before.
