Unfortunately cupid has not yet been ported to use 0.10 of GStreamer.
It uses 0.8.

Ronald should be able to answer these 2 questions.

The only one I know of is Flumotion which is designed to be a
streaming server but can also be used for the use case of audio/video
capture, encode and save to disk.

Cupid uses GStreamer 0.8 and possibly FC5 only has gstreamer 0.10.
