I have tried:

filesrc location=%s ! parsebin ! queue ! 
amcvideodec-omxmtkvideodecoderavc ! queue ! videoconvert ! glimagesink

as well other similar combination around amcvideodec but the decoding 
element is not recognized. I know that it's created on the fly. I saw 
"omxmtk" when it was failing with playbin. How do I specify the right 
pipeline on Android?
