Using GStreamer as RTSP Client

I tried using the Tutorial 5 to stream the RTSP stream. I just changed the
uri to my server uri. It given "your  GStreamer installation is missing a
plug-in". In the $(GSTREAMER_PLUGINS_NET) should include all the
plugins in this category. Do I need to include them somewhere else also?
Can you tell me where can I get some good documentation to learn all this?
