This element will only show if associated HW is detected on your Linux 
platform. It will be named v4l2videoNdec where videoN will be replaced 
by the name of your of your device node. If you have multiple decoder 
driver, multiple element will be loaded. What hardware are you targeting ?

Note that sometimes, cleaning registry may be needed (in case driver has 
been loaded after GStreamer had generated it's cache, and without v4l2 
plugin file being updated or touched). You can remove the cache by 
simply doing "rm $HOME/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/registry*"
