Displaying JPEG image on Quick Start Board

I'm trying to display a JPEG image on the Seiko LCD screen attached to a iMX53 Quick Start Board. This command seems to make GStreamer happy, but the screen remains blank:


$ gst-launch filesrc location=/frog.jpg ! jpegdec ! ffmpegcolorspace ! freeze ! mfw_v4lsink

When I run a similar test on my Linux-based dev system it works fine:

$ gst-launch filesrc location=frog.jpg ! jpegdec ! ffmpegcolorspace ! freeze ! ximagesink


I can play videos on the Quick Start Board using this command:

$ gst-launch playbin2 uri=file:///jumpingFrogs.m4v


Can anyone tell me why displaying a JPEG image isn't working as expected on the Quick Start Board?
