i alwayas had the best results with one of the following codecs, also 
with long files and up to 720p:





i have to add that this was with GEM 0.93 and PD 0.48 (32bits) on 
Windows and OSX, and i got a fluid framerate of up to 30fps. Gem was 
loaded in a seperate PD-process without the audio engine running.

i had no luck loading videos or images with the latest GEM (0.94 64bits) 
on windows.
