This is just a gstreamer1 dependency issue.
The needed package is still in a testing repo.

Temporarily enable the RPM Fusion testing repo as a workaround :

sudo dnf update --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing

Alternatively wait until the package is pushed to the updates repo.

This kind of problem sometimes occurs when dependencies which are installed from RPM Fusion are not updated at the same time as main packages from the fedora repositories. One other good example is the chromium web browser. When the chromium browser package gets updated, the chromium-libs-media-freeworld package (in case installed) often is still not available in the RPM Fusion free updates repository.
In this special case the package should be removed, because otherwise chromium doesn't work properly.

Update :
Meanwhile gstreamer1-plugins-ugly-1.14.1 has been pushed to the RPM Fusion free updates repository.
