I don't remember saying that, maybe I meant to say there might be a
workaround ?

For the fact, here we queue the headers (or first frame):

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-plugins-good/blob/master/sys/v4l2/gstv4l2videodec.c#L624

Then few line below this helper does G_FMT internally:

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-plugins-good/blob/master/sys/v4l2/gstv4l2videodec.c#L634
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-plugins-good/blob/master/sys/v4l2/gstv4l2object.c#L3907

And just plainly fails if G_FMT returns an error of any type. This was
how Kamil designed it initially for MFC driver. There was no other
alternative back then (no EAGAIN yet either).

p.s. it's still in my todo's to implement source change event as I
believe it is a better mechanism (specially if you header happened to
be corrupted, then the driver can consume the stream until it finds a
sync). So these sleep or normally wait exist all over to support this
legacy thing. It is unfortunate, the question is do you want to break
userspace now ? Without having first placed a patch that would maybe
warn or something for a while ?
