I would like to project out what's being viewed (in particular
youtube videos ) to large screen LCD/TV with the audio amplified
to speakers.

Q1:
Is there any VGA & audio adaptors out there for iPad 3 & iPhone 5 ?
Pls provide links, say at amazon.com

Q2:
Any adaptors for connection to HDMI (as modern TVs come with HDMI
ports that support both video + audio at the same time)

The connector on the latest iPhone 5 / iPad uses the Lightning interface. So you want "lightning -> xxxx" accessories like these:

Audio is output is done most easily using the HDMI adapter. If you are outputting VGA, you should connect a cable to the headphone jack of the phone to get the audio. You probably want a 3.5mm stereo -> stereo RCA cable for that purpose, e.g.:

Of course, you can probably get knockoffs and no-name brand versions of these cables for cheaper from other places like eBay or Amazon.

Your best solution might be a $100 AppleTV. This connects to your TV and allows you to mirror your iPad's screen to the TV wirelessly:

AppleTV will also mirror any Mac provided it is running Mountain Lion or newer.

Otherwise you could hard wire using one of Apple's adapters:

iPhone5 is using the lightning adaptor.

Can the wireless solution suggested by Strung also support
iPhone 5 projecting its video/audio to a TV?
