You problem is to mix packages from different repositories. This causes
non matched dependencies. As the install if gstreamer-plugins-ugly
states it misses a specific library version. The libdvdread package you
are hand installing does not provide that one.

It is much easier to properly setup repositories using yum. Details are
documented within the CentOS wiki and on the rpmforge project site as well.
