You need gst-plugins-ugly and perhaps gst-plugins-bad. You can find
them in rpm.livna.org.

It doesn't matter where you extract the source.
If you want to know if GStreamer was properly installed you need to do this:
pkg-config --modversion gstreamer-0.10

You need liboil-devel.
Again, you can check with:
pkg-config --modversion liboil-0.3
