I opened a bug:

For quartz probably one of gdk_quartz_window_get_nswindow or
gdk_quartz_window_get_nsview is right, but these both take a window,
not a drawable.
Also I think the GStreamer osxvideosink doesn't implement the xoverlay
interface, so I'm not shure this is directly applicable to the
Gtk+GStreamer use case.
Anyway, let's see if there's someone with enough knowledge of OSX who
can comment on the bug report.
