How can I get a video that is reliable and looks decent? My computer doesn't give good video and I don't have anything else to record.

Assuming you already have an N64 the cheapest and most cost effective recording setup is a GV-USB2 External video capture card for your PC. Dazzle DVC 100 is a more common option but it's more expensive and has a worse picture quality.
Some people record using their phone camera as well, that can look ok but having a dedicated capture card will give you a much nicer picture and isn't that expensive.

With a capture card you would need to buy composite splitters and 2 extra composite cables to split the signal between your TV and the capture card.

Once you have the capture card download OBS studio which is a free capture software and google how to set it up for recording, if you have any other questions post back here.

Where could I get them and how much do they cost?

It depends on where you buy them for cost/local currency exchange, google "GV USB 2" it will popup with amazon and ebay links. If you are looking for cheaper options you are probably better off recording video on your phone. The google should also provide you with the setup guide which you will need once you get it in the mail.

I am new to speedrunning and was wondering how you set up splits. How do you do it?

Hi !
Most people use livesplit
http://livesplit.org

It's pretty straightforward and they even have tutorials for it. Basically you set your keys to start / stop a segment and you create all your splits. So every stages could be a split.

Once you are setup, you just run using your splits and Everytime you play, it'll keep track of your best segments and you'll run vs your fastest completion so far.

How do you add splits to a recorded run?

 
  KMKM

You could simply watch the run and split accordingly or you can put timestamps for each splits

Thank you KM! I've been meaning to ask about that, the way I added a timer to my recordings has been a bit more crude, hahaha
