Topic: Please help me connect my Wii to my iMac

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Hi everyone!

I've just been bought a Nintendo Wii for my birthday but it looks like I will need some kind of adapters to plug it into my iMac. I was hoping somebody could help me understand what I need. It's just the standard Wii console and a 27 inch desktop iMac running Catalina. Thanks in advance!




Well, you could try to use some Capture Devices, i used once a Video Grabber that was ment to be used to caputer VHS-Tapes.
A normal PC recognizes them as they do Webcames and you can see the Picture in many Programs.

But i am not sure what Devices are compatible with Macs and you'll have Lag.

I used it to use my Super Nintendo + Super Gameboy.
I used the standard Video App from Win 8.1 to see the Picture, as it recognized the Device as Input.
Than i made Screenshots of my Pictures on the Gameboy Camera.

Yes, using capture devices that were specifically meant for ordinary TV or VHS tapes and not games could create problems in some. Probably were designed for 480i.
I remember for a brief time I had to use one of those as my only "TV" for playing SNES. (I heard the mode only consoles used was technically called 240p which apparently wasn't a proper video mode but they still did because CRTs would still support it and it would get 60hz rate, which could matter for some games.)
