According to, the two at the bottom look like they come
directly from the GStreamer repository. Since they break your
installation, I would suggest you disable the repository in your sources
list for now and downgrade to the official gstreamer* packages from Fedora
Core 2. 

Unless you want to be a guinea pig for bleeding edge software. In that
case, report your problems upstream and live with these deficiencies.
