gear4 has unveiled the VideoBuddy - an iPod accessory that allows you to play music, video or images stored on your digital audio player through a TV or home entertainment system.

The VideoBuddy simply plugs into the iPod, while the bundled RCA cable connects to a TV or home entertainment system. The VideoBuddy doesn't need to be connected to a power source as it uses the iPod's charge.

It's compatible with all a number of different generations of iPod, and even allows iPod Touch users to surf to video-sharing site YouTube using the Wi-Fi connection and play the clips through a TV.

The VideoBuddy is priced at £29.99 and will be available from gear4 in April.
