...the quick answer is that no, you can't capture video and audio 
together with gem...it would be pretty slow, since it's having to read 
from the gpu framebuffer, and they weren't really designed with that in 
mind (at least the commodity ones)...

...it'd be my suggestion to use some form of dv-bridge (say, a camera 
or a dazzle hollywood), and output to that and then loopback from there 
to the computer you wish to further utilize them in...
