Your decoder will receive an EOS event via the sink pad's event function
(assuming it is operating in push mode). In there, your decoder should
process any remaining data that it may still have cached internally (ie.
force decoding+output of any remaining data) and then push the event
further downstream to the next element.
That way, it will end up in the sink, which will then post an EOS
message, which the application will take as cue to stop the pipeline.
