    That should be (I noted the difference in red):
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilite-stack -boolean YES
    See here.

    Can't help you with the other one.

    I have Snow Leopard and it worked for me. I executed the command above and killed the Dock. After doing so, I had a gradient highlight behind my stack items (like in the vid). Did you copy it right from my post? Did you remember to kill the Dock afterwards?
