Which version of GEM are you using?  All of the ones built in the last 
6 months or so would have pix_video aliased to pix_videoDarwin.  Does 
pix_video (or videoDarwin) print any errors to the console?  I know 
that it will print a set of messages when the object is first loaded, 
these happen if certain processes are successful or fail.

Can you use the webcam in any other apps on OSX?
