I have a problem with gstreamer-plugins-good update on three x86_64
boxes and none of them ever had any third party rpm packages except my
home built openssh-5.2.

I finally solved it by doing rpm -Uvh in the following files in order:

gstreamer-tools-0.10.20-3.el5.x86_64.rpm
gstreamer-0.10.20-3.el5.i386.rpm
gstreamer-0.10.20-3.el5.x86_64.rpm
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.20-3.el5.i386.rpm
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.20-3.el5.x86_64.rpm

>From there the update went smoothly on the test box.

Whatever caused this only seems to affect x86_64 machines.
