Game capture

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi there!

 

I have a White Unibody Macbook (2010) and, as you may know, recording with a software on it is... hard. Even with 4GB of RAM, the computer can hardly handle it. 

 

What I want to know is if it is possible to record my game sessions on my Macbook via a Game Capture. Plug my macbook video output on a Game Capture (HDMI or VGA) and record what's on my screen. I know it might exist (or not), but all I get when searching, is Game Capture for console which are compatible with mac for saving the videos.

 

I have 4GB or RAM, Mac OSX Lion, 2.4Ghz Intel core duo processor.

 

Thank you in advance, and have a nice week-end! :)

 

C4tapi.

If you want to avoid the computer doing anything at all, it would need to be a standalone recorder. There's one here:

You'd need to put a 2.5" drive inside it. It looks like it has an HDMI to component cable so you'd need to connect the MB to it using a Mini-DVI to female HDMI cable like this one:

It might not work but you could always return them or sell them if it didn't.
