did you installed GStreamer

They use the GStreamer media core for playback on Linux. Many distributions have this installed by default but may not have all the plugins to get playback working for you media format of choice

ok here i tried to add gstreamer plugin but this is what came out on terminal screen.

any ideas on what do next?
---------------------

configure: Package gstreamer-check-0.10 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gstreamer-check-0.10.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gstreamer-check-0.10' found
configure: no gstreamer-check-0.10 >= 0.10.8 (GStreamer Check unittest Library) found
checking for GST_PLUGINS_BASE... no
configure: Package gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10' found
configure: error: no gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10 >= 0.10.5.1 (GStreamer Base Plug-ins Library) found
