It's hard to comment on what might be the cause of this without knowing
the rest of the pipeline. Theoretically both should work fine, but
ffdec_h264/CONGO 2013.06 is based on a many year old now unmaintained
version of GStreamer.

I would recommend you use 1.x if you have the choice, especially if it
actually works better for you.
