revVideoGrabber broken?

Hi friends,

does anybody had success with the revVideoGrabber in 2.7.4?
QuickTime 7.1.3 on Mac and PC.

Tried with the demo stack "Video Captur.rev" in "Sample projects"
on my Mac and PC and almost nothing worked... :-/

I do not have any videosource attached on my Mac (is this necessary to
get the "revVideoGrabDialog"?) and have a TV card on my PC.

###############################################
On Mac:
Clicking "Video Settings..." does NOTHING on my Mac.

The docs say:
-> revvideograbdialog settingstype

! If using QT for grabbing video do NOT specify "type" with  
"revvideograbdialog"!

So I changed the script in the demo stack (which COULD need a little  
update!):

...
revVideoGrabDialog "display"
## Althought the docs stated to omit the type?
...

to a simple:
...
revVideoGrabDialog
...

and got this error:
Handler: Can't find handler
Object: QuickTime
Line: revVideoGrabDialog
Hint: revVideoGrabDialog

There is no control called "QuickTime" and the docs say this is the  
correct
syntax with QuickTime.

#################################################
PC:
Using "QT":
Clicking "Video Settings..." immediately crashes Rev every time!

Using "VfW":
All dialogs are shown, so this does work (somehow).

#############################################


Is the RevVideoGrabber simply broken or incompatible with the latest  
version
of QT or what?

Any hints are very welcome, we have to start a project with this  
feature right now!
