oh, must be this Patrick bumped into,
maybe on Apple's 10.2.8 Xserver, there's no Xvideo extension
but there should be in the Xfree86 server installed with fink
( the one i've worked with ).
Could you try to install  xfree86 with fink??
that's what's recommended in the INSTALL_NOTES.txt.

pd #1 : what really upsets me is that, if you have 10.2.8 or 10.3, G3 or G4,
webcam or dv, some things will/will not work..
Have they ever thought of standards and compatibilities in their big 
offices ??

this version has been built with ffmpeg support,
so i guess you have to build ffmpeg
( if you choose to keep your installed X server ),
and fix the paths in the Makefile.

a hint for what is missing for ffmpeg, seems your build system is not 
fink it with :
"fink selfupdate"
"fink index"

pd #2 : i prefer to have it running with xfree86
cause i like the word "free", very childish on my side

pd #3 : oke, i misunderstood that message with only word :: "rats...",
wouldn't  you have done the same ?? 
but oke, you can speak to me as a normal person
( without adding too much 'respect' like this ) ))))
