please include the pd-list in our conversation too, as they might will
know more than just me.

if you are using pidip, you could try [pdp_ffmpeg] (or [pdp_ffmpegin] or
similar, i don't know the exact name)
with pdp/pidip each decoding-library has a separate object.

if using Gem is an option (as you have already installed it), there is
one single object [pix_film] which uses (depending on your compilation,
all, several or none of) libquicktime, libavifile, libmpeg3 (or
libmpeg1) and libffmpeg.
when you create the first [pix_film] object, it should give you some
information about what libraries are compiled in.
i guess your gfx-card will not perform too well with Gem though. (this
is: Gem rendering, video decoding has _nothing_ to do with that)
you could use georg's [pix_2pdp] from yves' gem2pdp-bridge to get
image-data from Gem into pdp.
