gstreamer is rather common. I believe I have it installed on this KDE-only
SuSE box. I can't recall what it was needed for. I suggest you
install/update that package in isolation or ignore "system inconsistencies"
warnings. I can often do so in YaST as I don't have access to the
installation CD's.

Best wishes,
