afaik there is only one object which does play back video files including their sound. it is [pdp_qt~]
then you'll need pdp2gem to bring the image into the Gem side of things.
however the usual approach is to use another tool beforehand and split the videofile so you have an audio file and a movie file. then you can play them back easily in sync.

the Audiovideo patches are meant to explain different techniques how to play back audio and video in sync. It is a often reoccurring question on this list, so I made those patches. It is not a library, just patches. If you experienced crashes - this may happen if you load very long videos in the gem framebuffer, which is only meant for short sequences. If your graphics card has not enough memory that may happen. please be a bit more specific if you want more specific help - that is in the problem description as well as in the bug report.
