Use our repository, it is better maintained, has more frequent updates,
and solves among other issues this issue.

Try to not mix and match source installs and packages.  If you don't
have a good reason to install from source, use packages.

If you do want to compile from source, you should learn some basics
about compiling from source.  In this case, the output of configure
probably told you that it was pkg-config that couldn't find a new enough

In this case that's probably because you installed GStreamer
in /usr/local, and pkg-config doesn't check there by default.
Setting the env var PKGCONFIGPATH to /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig would help
in that case.
