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.
