    RCA Leads

    Random Question - and this may sound stupid but i'm not sure!

    Are you able to run video down the audio RCA lead??

    I.e I want to buy one of these and then split and use each for video extensions?

    Its just the same cable isn't apart from the colour end for identifying it?

    it is, it works, but it shouldn't do. video cable should have much better screening and a much fatter centre core. RG59 is made for a reason!

    If it's Component then use some decent 75 Ohm OFC cable. If it's composite then wet string works just as well

    As others have said, it will work. It looks a bit on the expensive side though :/
