This is a Mini-Jack to Video/Audio Cable for watching your iPod videos on the Television. Because I can't explain this very well, here's a review from AMAZON.com that explains why this works:
"Thanks to S. Clark I saved myself some money by not having to buy an Apple A/V cable since I already had a standard A/V cable. I had tried it in the past and found it didn't work, but now we know why. Just swap the yellow and red cables and your in business - it does work. However, in a discussion on this topic a person pointed something out that may explain why Apple has done this, and there is then good reason for it. Apparently on a standard A/V cable the video channel is on the center ring of the mini-plug. The problem is then that you have to use an A/V cable, because if you used an audio-only cable you'd lose one of the audio channels because it as at the bottom ring! That would mean you couldn't plug in standard headphones without an adapter, and so Apple changed the A/V cable so that both audio channels are at the top and the video channel is at the bottom. That way you can use either an A/V cable or a straight left/right audio cable and both work. Makes sense! Of course Apple could have opted to tell you that you can just switch the red and yellow wires on a standard A/V cable, but that's a lesser evil - you could even argue that that would just complicate matters and so they may even be justified in not revealing that info."
