You can certainly use a converter there, something like the one I have linked below.

Please be aware that not all converts are made equal so would recommend a reputable brand such as StarTech if you need to buy one.

Do you have a CPU with an iGPU? Otherwise the connector on the motherboard won't do anything.

Beat me to it. Quick and dirty, OP, a Ryzen-G or I believe a non-suffixed Intel processor is needed for the motherboard to output video. Otherwise, you'll need a video card, which would display video directly from its own port(s). But yes, a converter can be used directly at a valid output port.

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.
