As per usual, if you've already added my repository to your Solaris 11 installation the following command will install the required plugins.

sudo pkg install gst-plugin-asf gst-plugin-ffmpeg

Don't forget to setup your environment variables. See the introduction for more information. You will need to logout and then login to initialise the environment so the plugin can be found.
