Capturing Audio/Video for a Let's Play

Hello there,

I'm new here. I've been using a MacBook Pro for a little over a year now, but I still have yet to do more advanced things with it than surfing the Internet, crafting podcasts, and editing videos shot on my Kodak camera.

I'm looking into doing a Let's Play for Pokémon Yellow Version, but I'm not quite sure what kind of tools I'd need.

I can either do this with an emulator or somehow record video from my SDTV (no HD, unfortunately.) In the latter case, the game cartridge would be played through a Nintendo 64 on Pokémon Stadium.

Could someone give me a rundown of the software/hardware I need, as well as some photos of the products (and possibly the hook-ups as well)?

I'd appreciate any and all help.

If you use an emulator, you should be able to record your screen using Quicktime.

I did manage to do that, but let's just say it wasn't the smoothest process in the world.

Trying to piece together separate video and audio, especially when they kick in at different times, was quite the task.

This is my final product: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAHNa...d-Mt-NiCRx5VBZ
