Hmm, are you using a Finch binary which was compiled for your
distribution?  I believe this error happens because you're using a
Finch binary which was compiled against a newer version of gstreamer
than the one installed on your system.

Are you using our RPMs?  I don't know what version of gstreamer you
would need, but I see 0.10.11 here:
