You don't know what program to play it with?

Or you don't hear any sound when you try to play it?

What have you tried so far?

What tool are you using to play MP3 song.

Try installing vlc player via http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-fedora.html
It works awesome.

Hi, John VV -

That was certainly news to me ... and I'm a Fedora user (Fedora 11, at the moment)!

Fedora ships without any form of MP3 playback. In order to add MP3 playback you must install from a 3rd party. The following requires the use of the RPMFusion repositories...
Not only wasn't I aware that Fedora didn't ship with MP3 players (I'm used to just about *every* distro shipping with *multiple* audio players, each supporting *multiple* formats) ... but I wasn't aware that the MP3 format was encumbered. I thought the fact that it came from the "Moving Picture Experts Group" meant that it was basically an "Open" format. In fact, it looks like the exact "ownership" of the standard is a legal mess:

that "legal mess" is also why "libdvdcss" is on livnia .nobody else wants to be sued

the "no patents " philosophy has been there since day one . and my first fedora install ( fedora 4)
and is why the nouveau and fglrx drivers are used instead of the nvidia and ati catylist
