...sure:  first step would be to port v4l (video 4 linux) to mac 
osx...barring that, you could try to write an object for native video 
input on osx, perhaps using the already working GEM pix_video object as 
a guideline...otherwise, I'd just use gem and pdp together, with the 
gem2pdp/pdp2gem bridges...
