you mean "stop" like "full freeze, have to plug the power-cord"?
have a look at the used video decoding libraries; probably one of them
is making troubles; afaik pdp (and/or pidip) use only libquicktime (but
might be totatlly wrong here...) whereas Gem also uses libavifile and
libmpeg3... if one of these libs makes troubles _before_ Gem tries
libquicktime then you might get the problems you are experiencing.
