ok, I figgered as much out already in the mean time.

I recompiled Gem with v4l2, but now have the same problem as these two


again, the camera works perfectly with xawtv, mplayer, openframeworks,
and any other v4l2 app out there.   

I'd also mention that the Gem code still uses an archaic ffmpeg version.
I can compile without it, but it is a shame not to have those features.
