Video Switching

How do I make a video switcher in Ableton (or using m4l)?

I want an effect so that when a key is pressed the video window switches to a different video, and then back again when the key is pressed again.

I have audio tracks the CPFade m4l device ( by Efraim ) so that when a key is pressed the audio switches track, can this be done using video as well?

Any ideas?

    I think there should be a way to achieve this without M4L, given the fact that with multiple video tracks, only the bottom-most track is played by the video engine. 

    In my experience however, even playing pre-arranged video tracks gives jerky frames at clip boundaries...
