I'm not guru with GST by any means. But some things you may want to look

GST does quite a bit of thread management on it's own. It builds the logic
into the pipeline using various layers of queues and multiqueues.

Is it possible that the single packet isn't enough to fulfill the segment?
Take a look at the debug output of ffdec, is it spitting off buffer

Not sure where this is coming from, but you may want to throw a queue
between your appsrc and ffdec so it would be appsrc->queue->ffdec

Not sure where the EOS is coming from, but you may want to look into
blocking pads to control pipeline flow. Also take a look at the 'eos'
property on the appsink element, this may be what's causing your issue, but
I'm just guessing here.

No idea here, sorry.
