There is a well documented problem with the initial installation of the gstreamer libraries in LMDE.

1. Update the update manager
2. When the update manager loads the many updates, de-select the 2 gstreamer libraries.
3. Proceed with the massive update.
4. When the update manager re-loads updates at the completion of #3, you should see the 2 gstreamer updates. Go ahead and do your updates at that point.

Note : Before doing any of the above, insure that your repositories are pointed to the correct sources.list

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much

I'm trying to point them to the correct source using the Software Sources in the update manager but I am getting this

I think the directory should be http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/dists/testing/main/binary-amd64/
