Can you give a try with a fixed pipeline, like:

  filesrc ! parsebin ! <amcvideodec> ! glimagesink

I wonder if it's just negotiation issue or if there is something else.
Also, looks at the logs, normally AMC code warns when there is issues
(e.g. unsupported color format). I know from the upstream driver the
mediatek codec produces some HW specific tile format, that might be
related. We have added software detilers in the past for other
platform, like older Samsung MFC codec.
