    So I'm comparing the pros and cons of vga vs composite on 4-5" screens, and I want to know if it really makes a noticeable difference. I have a 4.3" I've used before (composite) and was reasonably satisfied with it, although I did feel the quality could've been slightly better. But I think that has less to do with it being composite than it does with being a cheap tiny lcd screen. So I was wondering, would vga or hdmi etc really matter on screens smaller than 7"? Is there a noticeable difference when they aren't being held side by side?

    VGA is worlds better. I have one screen that takes both VGA and composite. It's unreal how good VGA looks by comparison

    Thank you :) I guess I'll have to try out gcvideo in the future. I can't imagine my current project can fit anything extra in, but I'm glad to know that there is a much better video option than composite.
