Computers have limitations. There's no computer in the world that will
play an unlimited number of AVIs at the same time at proper speed.

Perhaps you could provide some more details such as:
 - what hardware/system are you using?
 - what GStreamer version are you using?
 - what decoders are you using? (software? hardware?)
 - what video/audio outputs are you using?
 - how many AVIs of what resolution/framerate are you trying to play?
