Output video on a TV

Dec 16 2011 | 1:26 pm


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?)

i realized it should be very simple. gonna make my tests, and come back here if i encounter any problems.

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 ?

What is you macbook version?

Dec 19 2011 | 9:32 pm

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.

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.

(Are you planning a new tour?)
