Output video on a TV


    Dec 16 2011 | 1:26 pm
    Hi,
    i never used jitter, but i may use it to broadcast video on a TV screen. I will run it on a macbook.
    I know how to play video files etc., but not how to put it on a TV.
    Thank you for your help.

      Hi chapelier fou...
      depends on
      - your TV version
      (If it is a pretty new device, with VGA or HDMI input, you will need a simple cable. If it is an older one with video, peritel or rca you will need a converter.)
      - your macbook version
      (Is it a macbook with dvi, mini dvi ? or mini display port?)

      Wow, it seems that there is NO hdmi---->peritel (old school connector) available ! Can't believe it. I really want to use an old TV on stage.
      Can anybody confirm this ?

      It's a 10 months old white macbook.
      don't know the connection, but the symbol is a rectangle with two vertical lines on both sides.

      Hi,
      For the last white macbook, you will need:
      - a mini display port to VGA adapter:

      ( you can find generic and cheaper one outside the apple store.....)
      - vga to RCA / S video converter.

      and finally a Composite / s video to Scart converter.

      (our french Peritel port is also called Scart)
      These items can also be found on the french amazon marketplace.
