Correct me please, if I'm wrong: jack's distinct feature seems to be 
the n to n plumbing plus internal summing if needed, not the 

To make video plumbing any interesting I reckon you'd want something 
like Fusion or Blender's node system. Nothing of which, just a hunch, 
will ever end up in jack graphs.

Why not keep things simple and use jack's (maybe to be enhanced) 
timing information as a studio clock to sync video frames? Meaning 
what "videojack" really wants to be is a jack audio client with good 
video-specific plumbing on its own.
