If so, I recently decided that I want to try to get into speed running games like Pikmin 2 or SMG1, but I don't have a capture card for my Wii U. So I was wondering if are any would that any of you would recommend.


dont need a cap card to speedrun, but gv-usb2 is cheap

Like @Komrade said, the gv-usb2 is cheap !
But you could also point a webcam to your TV screen, or record it with your mobile phone. (for the free options)


for SMG1, just note that for Any% you only need video proof for times below 3 hours


@Komrade, I'm pretty sure I've seen something that looks almost exactly like that somewhere in my house.

@Saydie, I would do that if had a reliable method of doing so. :T


as long as its not a dazzle you're good..


please don't encourage proof-less runs if they're willing to actually provide proof @starsmiley

i say that because afaik the mods don't really check the VOD even if you have proof with that type of time. obviously you want proof, but if everything else fails, you don't have to worry too much


Buy a GV2 for decent SD capture. Though I wouldn't really call it cheap persay, as it being called cheap is why everyone thinks basic SD capture can cost $30-40.

If you don't really care about your audio/video quality too much then you could just pickup any cheaper SD capture card, they can go as low as $9-10 on Amazon:
