Are the decoders working? And can you get a debug log with amc*:6?

For the debug log, edit (note the .in) and
change the gst_debug_set_default_threshold() to
  gst_debug_set_threshold_from_string("2,amc*:6", TRUE)
and then rebuild your application with that.

Now you should get a lot of output on "adb logcat".
