Hello, thanks a lot for your response!

Here's my feedback:
$ pd -path ./abstractions:.
commando worked fine! I open the pd in the directory where I downloaded and
installed the recent version of GEM, and it basically works fine. [gemwin]
and vlc plugin are there and alive.

I just to want to add a couple of notes:
1) when I feed [pix_video] with a stream created in vlc on another laptop I
get the image but with the channels R and B inverted! This does not happen
when I stream from my laptop to one of my collegue (he gets the correct
2) About the
$ make install
I had already used that command (as I followed the instructions on the
above mentioned site). Should I do it again?

My friend suggests that some eror might have occured when compiling the new
GEM and I might have some libraries not correctly assigned.
I hope I was clear enough...

Anyway thank you very much for all you do.
