That plug is for SVideo (super video). If your videocard has an SVideo output, then you can hook it up that way. Not sure how, but you can.

Oh, my bad.. looked like SVideo at first glance. Yeah, you need an adaptor for that.

Or, you could get a SVideo cable that has RCA jacks on the other end.

You need to get a SVideo plug that has a male yellow video input on the other end. Or, an adaptor.
