you would not be needing Gem... it is for 3D graphics
and from what I can tell, you just want a video
sequence to play.  You do however need to run
Framestien inside PD to handle the video commands.  I
do not have the link where you can download it
handy... In fact I cannot seem to find where it used
to be now that I am doing a search for Framestien???? 
Did it move???

anyways you will need to find framestien and follow
the documentation on how to install it.  I think it
can be as simple as placing Framestien within your PD
directory, and double click the FS icon to run FS. 
You must be running PD at the time you start FS. 
Oh... you might need to set a path to the Framestien
directories so that PD will know where to look for
files like "fs.main" and "fs.frame".  It has been a
while since I have set Framestien up and I run
everything from a .bat file and again I am away from
my computer so I cannot tell exactly how I have things
set up.

hope that helps
