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?
