This is a nice one :-)

One problem with the threads you created: the queues are filled up quite 
fast on my machine, the parser hits eof and ends the program before even
the first frame is decoded. How do we check the end of the decoding process
in all the elements?

two options for the filled queues:

 Limit the size of the queue to some arbitrary length (configurable). Bad

 Make the system stream parser aware of the PTS/DTS timecodes. How do we
 do with WAV? limit buffer length?

i'll implement the buffer length for now. You'll allways want to limit the 
queue length or you'll end up having a complete movie in memory.
