What do the colors on component video cable mean

Report as

The previous answer is for RCA jacks, not component jacks. The four different colors on component video cables are for the colors they are sending to the TV they are hooked to. Combined, those colors make up the image you see.

Red, yellow and white are color coded to match your audio video connections on your electronic devices such as TV, DVD player, Stereo.

Just a marker for what goes where buy basically you can just mix them up. Example: yellow is for video but you can dedicate that for either r audio or l audio

There are usually five different connectors/colors on the cable. Yellow and white are your audio connections and red,green and blue are the video signal to your television/monitor.

There's RED and white for audio and
also another red,green and blue for video. On regular RCA patch cords it's red and white for audio and yellow for video.
