How to Convert VGA to Composite Video

Video Graphics Array (VGA) is a type of video input commonly used to connect computers to computer monitors. Composite video is a standard quality video input commonly used to connect devices like DVD players to television sets. While VGA and composite video are not inherently compatible with each other, you can purchase a small piece of hardware that allows you to convert VGA to Composite Video by plugging the cables into an adapter.

Things You'll Need

  • VGA to composite video adapter
  • VGA cable
  • Composite video cable


    • 1

      Plug your VGA cable into the VGA input on the appropriate side of the adapter.

    • 2

      Insert the composite video cable into the composite video input/output on the adapter.

    • 3

      Plug the other end of your composite video cable into whichever device you intended on connecting it to. Put the other end of the VGA cable into whichever device you intended on connecting it to. The video signal will now pass through the VGA cable, to the adapter. Then it will pass through the composite video cable from one device to the other.
