See what I wrote in the upstream bug report. You can explicitly use
avdec_mjpeg in a custom pipeline.

For using it automatically in decodebin/playbin, you would have to
adjust the ranks of jpegparse and avdec_mjpeg. Either by changing their
code, or from your application with gst_plugin_feature_set_rank().
