hi yves,

gem can handle video files as openGL texture maps. I never got the capture 
function to work.

i had the same problem on a pc running win2000. it finally turned out to be 
an openGL problem: one of the two video cards i was using for dual display 
didn't support it. replacing this card with an opengl compatible one solved 
it (as did simply deactivating the non-openGL display). GEM is an 
interesting package so i hope you can get it to work.
