Well, first you need to make sure that the gst-openmax plug-in is
functioning properly. You can do that with 'gst-inspect omx', if you
don't see anything, you would have to figure out why it's not being
loaded. Maybe you are missing libgst-openmax.so (I believe that's the
name of the file) in the plug-ins directory, or maybe there's an issue
loading it, you can check that by enabling the gstreamer debug
category GST_PLUGIN_LOADING (I think). But none of that stuff is
specific to gst-openmax, you can ask this in the main mailing list.

It's actually $HOME/.config/gst-openmax.conf

In theory you don't even need to provide a configuration, because
there's a default one, but most likely it will not work on your
particular implementation, but at least the omx_h264dec element would
