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.
