vga rca (rgb) to wonderwall proj. red wh yel

Specs: Windows 7
I purchased a Wonderwall projector thinking I could connect it to my laptop to project skype, youtube videos or even dvds to my classroom. However I was told I needed a rca to vga connector. I got a "VGA male to 3-rca component video male cable...but it is red green and blue at the end. however the Wonderwall projector needs red white and yellow. Are the red green blue interchangeable with the red yellow and white. OR, is there a converter for me to plug in the vga to the computer and then the red green and blue into a converter at one end and then plug the red yellow and white at the other end of the converter which would then go into the Wonderwall projector? I am not techie - does this make sense?

No, they aren't interchangeable. And while you could go from VGA to YPBPR to Composite, this would probably result in a lot of image degradation. VGA to Composite alone is usually brutal. You need a VGA scan converter unless you know your laptop's video card supports TV out directly.

Example scan converter (not a personal endorsement):

Thank you very much for your help; you are kind to answer my question. One more quesiton: Is the Sewell brand VGA scan converter the brand to get or is any VGA scan converter good enough? Also, I am unsure about my laptops video card; I will go to my help button and search "video card" and see what it says. Thank you. Nancy

I'm not personally endorsing the product, as I've never used it, and haven't used any scan converters in many years. Any scan converter that supports composite video will work; the main things I would look at are user reviews to see if the product is reliable and has decent image quality (low static and distortion).

I used to have a list of video chipsets that supported the composite video out through the VGA port, but I don't know where it is offhand, and I don't think any recent chipsets are on the list, so a scan converter is still the best option.
