mfw_isink plays the movie, but I cannot see it (what is your behavior?
Do you get any error?)

And, for isink you need to take care of vssconfig file and kernel
command line. It does not work "out of box" as v4lsink does.

See at /usr/share/vssconfig*

I´m not familiar with isink behavior for imx6 yet, but for imx53, if
you don´t configure it properly, it won´t work.
