Use Xine or realplayer, they work fine.

Have you installed the mp3 codecs? There should be a help file on the Fedora website.

You may also try mplayer.
Here is a guide on how to compile/install it in fedora:http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mplayer-fedora.shtml

You need to have the development package(make,gcc, etc) installed in order to do this.
