Doing so does require an adaptor, but you are not going to lose any video quality when performing the connection.

    Plug the red, green and red component ends of the adaptor into the "Component Out" ports on the back of the DVD player.

    Turn on the DVD player and the computer screen and the monitor displays the video created by the DVD movie.
