    The last time I saw one of those was when I was recording onto my reel to reel tape machine and an early cassette system from Philips. It is, I think, a 5 pin DIN socket and used to carry stereo audio signals. I don't think that you will have any luck trying to send video signals through this, but I always stand to be corrected.

    That is a DIN Type "A" 180 degree socket, which accepts a DIN Type "A" 180 degree plug. Maplin do the plugs, but you won't be able to use it to connect a DVD player, because the socket is clearly labelled for use with a tape recorder, so there is no video connection.
