Theoretically this should do it:

gst_element_send_event (GST_ELEMENT (pipeline), gst_event_new_eos());

+ wait for GST_MESSAGE_EOS on bus.

In practice, I seem to remember that there was an issue in
rtpjitterbuffer where it would sometimes 'eat' the EOS event. I don't
remember if that was fixed or not. Try it :)
