What type of plug is this?

What kind of plug is this one in the middle? I'm sure the other two plugs are for mono and video RCA

Update:

It can't be a 3.5mm jack. For further reference, it's some kind of power plug for an old late 70s VHS camera I found, I'm just trying to find out what type it is

    The middle plug is actually a socket and it looks like a jack socket, possibly 2.5 or 3.5mm, usually used for an audio connection like headphones or an auxiliary audio input/output. It could be stereo or mono.

    RCA plugs to 1/8" stereo jack

    For what it's worth, sometimes something one cannot make sense of is ground, and there are grounding lugs on some equipment.

    I associate VHS cameras with the late 80s rather than the late 70s, but if you're correct, perhaps the three in your photo are audio, video, and power; there was once linear stereo instead of hi-fi stereo for VHS, though, so they may be two audio channels instead.

    I don't know enough about Betamax to know without research whether the connectors appeared different.

    why cant it be a 3.5mm jack socket (mono)?

    and why have you assumed its some kind of power plug (and the centre of the photo certainly aint a plug)?

    It's not a plug, it's a socket. I'd say it was. 3.5mm jack socket.

    It's a female TRS stereo patchcord to RCA plugs. You can plug what they call an "AUX cord" into it and plug the RCA side into a component that uses such..

    Middle plug should be an 1/8 inch stereo/mono headphone plug. The remaining two look like regular RCA jacks (which are mono - right and left)

      You have "plug" and "jack" backward.
      A male connector is a plug.
      A female connector is a jack.

      1/8" headphone jack. Yes.
      2 RCA plugs. Yes.

    Your picture Absolutely SUCKS.

    Why didn't you take a better one?

    As for the connector in question, it Must be one of these:

    > 3,5 mm (1/8") jack

    > 2,5 mm (3/32") jack

    > small DC power socket (there are over 50 different sizes,

    so don't ask anyone to guess exactly what size it might be!)

    The middle one is a 3.5mm jack. the other two are RCA plugs. In audio use, the red plug is generally for the right channel, left is white or black.
