Thanks Robin,

Late reply was granted given I left the subject blank.
I figured as much from trawling the internets for OSX  and xjadeo.

It doesn't sound like it'd be too hard for someone to come up with a  
video option for Ardour and OSX.
(but its is well beyond me I am afraid)  - I don't need a video track  
- that is bling- but I do need video sync/playback.

I understand that ardour dev has other priorities....but I just need  
this one little thing....
