[Digikam-users] Playing videos in V5

I have been doing a little more digging and apparently gstreamer-0_10 
seems quite old and I was able to un-install it with no problems so now 
I have only gstreamer 1.8.2 installed with all the appropriate plugins 
etc and yet I still have the problem in digikam.

So I guess I still need some help in debugging this if anyone has any 
ideas please?
