          I am trying to decode H264 (avc) elementary stream using
decodebin. gst-typefind-1.0 is not able to determine the stream format of
H264 ES(stream-format=avc).  Where as byte-stream elementary stream has no
issues. Input can be downloaded from and following is a
	gst-launch filesrc location=Avc_stream.264 ! decodebin ! fakesink
	Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
	Pipeline is PREROLLING ...
	ERROR: from element
Could not determine type of stream.
	Additional debug info:
	gsttypefindelement.c(1067): gst_type_find_element_loop ():
	ERROR: pipeline doesn't want to preroll.
	Setting pipeline to NULL ...
	Freeing pipeline ...
