I don't use Gnome, but that seems to be the "GStreamer-PackageKit integration".
It appears automatically when you try to play a video for which you
don't have the decoder?
If so, trying to install both 1.0 and 1.2 is a bug in the
"GStreamer-PackageKit integration". You should report it at
https://bugzilla.novell.com/. If you assign it to the Gnome team I am
sure you will get a reply soon.
By the way, the fact that "gstreamer-plugins-base-1.0.10-2.1.3
(64-bit)" appears twice is clearly an indication that something is
wrong there.

I don't have a 13.1 system yet.
But you should be able to use zypper to install the GStreamer (1.2)
packages from Packman manually and then the GStreamer-PackageKit
integration will not be needed.
