looks like my time machine for jumping 11 days in the future
eventually works.. (lame excuse for my late reply)

Maybe you've already fixed your issue, but I still have a few ideas.

yep, it looks good.

is stated the validity of the data into memory must last at least as
long as the QImage itself and in the list you've reported it appears
you're not handling buffer references at all. At best, you're leaking
memory like there's no tomorrow, at worst (depending on the pov) the
buffer "buffer" gets unreffed somewhere by chances and then you might
observed teared images (depending on the color space) or even
segfaults. Another good reason for using QtGstreamer ;)

Even if it worked, I would anyway not use such an approach to convert
all the frames in a clip (check what does the gst_video_convert_frame
function do to be convinced). It's imo better to use a color space
conversion element (e.g. ffmpegcolorspace) at the end of the pipeline
or after a tee and an appsink element.
