I have tried the 1080p and 480p H.264/mov version and they seem to play
fine for me with gst-launch-1.0 playbin uri=file:///path/to/ and
1.0.3 and git master. (Your hand-crafted pipeline would probably benefit
from a queue before the xvimagesink.)

Is it supposed to be very noticable? Or does it only happen after a
while (I watched only the beginning)?
