In a really crappy way, you could capture the desktop as a way to get your output into Jitter, but that isn’t going to work well because it is essentially a screen capture of what is on the top layer.
For lowest latency, I’d recommend just outputting your video from your program, and using a hardware mixer to mix your output with Jitter. However, if your aim is to put effects on your output, then using one of the uncompressed firewire capture devices and a seperate computer isn’t a bad plan.
You’ll need to make this one work, but it is theoretically possible.
Using the freeframe wrapper in Virtual DJ, and the Freeframe object in Jitter, use Bigfug’s Patchbox streaming system to bridge the two programs. I’ll let you figure that out with some googling and a lot of fiddling. At some point I was able to get visualJockey to send using patchbox to Jitter… so in theory the same would work for VirtualDJ or any other program that supports the freeframe effects standard.

Parts you’ll need:
VirtualDJ
FFwrapper off the virtualDJ site. – man, they strike me as a scuzzy company.

Bigfugs Freeframe plugin –

Not sure how these are setup now, but I believe you can do some sort of buffer sharing mode between your send and receive applications if they’re on the same machine instead of generating an actual stream which could bridge two machines over a network. This makes things run faster/use less resources.

Jitter freeframe host
jit.freeframe

I’d be curious if this works, and what the latency is like.

I’d also tend to go for a solution where you only run one major video program per computer if you’re also trying to generate decent sounding audio. Running a program playing videos with decent audio quality and then taking that and running Jitter seems like a lot of processing.
