Indeed, freeze's behavior was a special case. But everything worked
nicely in the end!
For record purposes, I had to:
* Set pipeline to READY
* Change URI in neonhttpsrc
* Unlink decoder-freezer-conv
* Remove freezer from the pipeline
* Unref freezer
* Create a new freezer
* Add freezer to the pipeline
* Link decoder-freezer-conv
* Set pipeline to PLAYING
Thanks for the hint, and greetings!
