failed to allocate memory error on pipeline

I am running the following command as part of a pipeline that grabs the
video stream from stdout, flips and displays it using framebuffer (because
we're using pi zero without gui)

gst-launch-1.0 fdsrc ! video/x-h264,framerate=25/1,
stream-format=byte-stream ! decodebin ! video/x-raw,framerate=25/1
! videoflip method=vertical-flip
! videoconvert ! fbdevsink
This has the verbose debugging of the pipeline.
We are using a pi zero without gui.

Is this failed memory error a known issue? is there a work around?
