    I did not see any application like this yet so I made one.
    This allows quick changes in the currently displayed video mode, its also temporary so after a reboot or something like that the settings will be reset to the ones you set in the system settings.
    https://github.com/FIX94/wiiu-video-mode-changer/releases
    You can change between NTSC and PAL, all the different ports (hdmi, composite, s-video, scart and component) and change the resolution (576i, 480i, 720p, ...) to whatever you want, I did not include any safety guards for invalid settings so keep that in mind (you wont for example get composite to go to 720p etc.).
    Personally I just made this to make it possible to output s-video on my pal wiiu and it does that job fine, only downside so far seems to be that in wii mode the settings also get lost, I guess changing into wii mode does count as a reboot...
    Anyways, hopefully somebody finds this useful.

    if you have a pal wiiu, you are for example forced to have composite/scart and cant switch to composite/s-video and on a ntsc wiiu theres the opposite issue, also there seem to be quite a few video modes normally not accessable, if somebody has a 3d tv I do wonder if the 720p 3d setting actually works for that person because it does seem to be an option.

    I did not add any limitations as I wrote in the first post, so I included every weird setting thats available including some comment to what happens setting it on my tv with my cables.
